In fact, Gerrard admits he would not allow any Manchester United shirt inside his house.
The 35-year-old, who returned to Liverpool earlier this week to keep up his fitness levels before heading back to Los Angeles in the New Year, enjoyed several fierce battles with Keane before the Republic of Ireland international left Old Trafford in 2005.

Asked whether he would allow a United shirt inside his house, Gerrard told RTE Radio One today - per the Belfast Telegraph - “"Why would I?. Why would I allow a Manchester United one when they are the biggest rivals?"
His interviewer responded: "Maybe because you might have swapped shirts with someone like Roy Keane?"

Gerrard replied: "Roy Keane is one of my favourite players. I really loved playing against him, I have nothing but respect for the guy and as a player but being a Liverpool fan from the day I was born, there is no need for me to have a Manchester United shirt in my house."
Gerrard rates Keane as best ever PL midfielder
Back in September, Gerrard named Keane as the best midfielder in Premier League history.
When asked to rank Keane, Frank Lampard, Paul Scholes, Patrick Vieira and himself in order by the Daily Mail, Gerrard responded by saying: “Keane No 1. The rest? They’re all different.
“Frank’s the best goalscoring midfielder, Scholes the best footballer, Vieira the most difficult opponent... I loved playing against all of them.”
Keane's technical qualities were underrated
Keane was an incredible leader - one of the best captains of the Premier League era - while his technical qualities were underrated.
The fiery Irishman possessed an excellent first touch, fantastic passing ability and an eye for goal.
Keane left United having won seven Premier League titles, four FA Cups and the Champions League.
Gerrard is also a Premier League legend
Gerrard, meanwhile, failed to land his hands on the Premier League trophy but still left Anfield as a true club legend.
The all-action midfielder won two FA Cups, the League Cup on three occasions, the UEFA Cup and the Champions League.
