Roy Keane has always had a somewhat, shall we say, prickly reputation. The Republic Of Ireland assistant manager took no prisoners during his playing career and has dealt out plenty of verbal barbs at rivals and team mates alike over the years.

The Corkman's fellow ITV World Cup pundit Slaven Bilic was also known for his tough tackling on the pitch but he might want to think twice about making contact with Keane in the studio.

During their analysis of Croatia's victory of Nigeria last night, the Croatian turned to Keane and gave him a brush on the shoulder leading to a brief death stare followed by a roll of the eyes and a shake of the head.

Most people in Ireland would definitely know better. Check out the video below.
