thumbnail Hello,

Both men are iconic figures at Old Trafford because of their years of service to the club, but a bitter public row has erupted over comments in the former manager's autobiography

Gordon McQueen has attempted to cool tempers after Roy Keane once again hit out at Sir Alex Ferguson, claiming that the former Manchester United manager still wants control at Old Trafford because of his "massive ego".

McQueen, who represented United between 1978 and 1985, says that everybody connected to the club should be pulling in the same direction as new manager David Moyes settles in.

In his recent autobiography, Ferguson criticised Keane for the events that led up to the Irishman's exit from Old Trafford, namely training-ground rows with former No.2 Carlos Queiroz and an explosive interview given to the club's in-house television channel, MUTV, in which he fiercely criticised his then team-mates.

Keane responded at the time, alleging that Ferguson did not know the meaning of the word loyalty, and has also had his say in ITV4's documentary 'Keane and Vieira: Best of Enemies', which is to be aired on Tuesday evening.

But former Scotland defender McQueen believes Keane is unlikely to win any friends at United because Ferguson enjoys larger popularity.
