Roy Keane has accused some Republic of Ireland players of making former boss Steve Staunton´s job an impossible one and paving the way for his predictable downfall last week.

The Sunderland boss insists too many Irish stars consistently under-performed in the Euro 2008 qualifying campaign, which hit a new low in the dismal 1-1 draw with Cyprus earlier this month.

Keane said: "Everyone appreciates what a hard job it is especially for a young manager like Steve Staunton. Sympathy is too strong a word but I do appreciate what a tough job he had.
