Former Ipswich Town manager Roy Keane is due to appear in court over an alleged road-rage row with a taxi driver.

Keane, 43, has been summonsed to go before Trafford Magistrates’ Court after police received a report he had behaved aggressively in the incident in January.

It is alleged that the Irishman, who managed Ipswich Town from 2009 to 2011, got in to the row with cabbie Fateh Kerar, 44, near traffic lights on Ashley Road, in Altrincham, on January 30.

In a statement, Greater Manchester Police said: “A summons was posted for Roy Keane to his home address in Hale to appear before Trafford Magistrates court on March 31 for a Section 4A public order offence.

“This is in relation to an incident on Friday, January 30, when police were called to Ashley Road, Altrincham, to a report that a man had behaved aggressively towards another man.”
