Roy Keane's reaction to Barca's team selfie after PSG win is priceless

As we all know, Roy Keane is an extremely frank individual.

The former Manchester United captain was a legendary figure during his time at Old Trafford and his no-nonsense attitude has translated to his punditry career.

To say that the former Republic of Ireland international is 'old school' would probably be an understatement, and he has had no problem calling out players in the past for modern day tendencies that he does not agree with.

Take Arsenal for example. Keane has called out the Gunners in the past for taking too many post-match selfies, insisting that they should be concentrating on winning trophies rather than taking pictures.

"Arsenal have some really good players - some good characters who roll their sleeves up," said Keane, who was quoted in a number of newspapers before Arsenal beat Chelsea in the Community Shield back in 2015.

"But they also have one or two players who are more interested in selfies and six-packs, guys who are trying to get their pictures taken every day of the week.

"Listen, every year we hear the same thing about Arsenal being contenders. Instead of focusing on the Premier League, it's all about how their bodies look, how their hair is, more so than winning football matches."

It was a damning assessment from Keane, so how would he feel about Barcelona taking a changing room team selfie following their incredible 6-1 win over PSG to secure their passage into the last eight of the Champions League?

It appears as if there is no occasion where Keane thinks it is acceptable to post a celebratory selfie, and if last night doesn't qualify, we're not sure there will ever be an exception to Keane's rule!

We're just waiting for the day when Keane posts a selfie following an amazing Ireland victory or something. Twitter would literally explode.
