In a fiesty final, Roy Keane beat Gary Lineker to the top award last year as crisp fiend Gaz warned ahead of kick-off: “I think Roy Keane will knock me out….even if he wins.”It was, of course, all in good nature though and sadly for Gary the prediction came at least partly true as Keano romped home with a stunning 71% of the vote.Former United enforcer Keane has built a fearsome reputation for himself in punditry, much like he did during his playing days.And he’s yet to let up having had another memorable year which has seen epic rants on topics such as United’s embarrassing defeats to bitter rivals Liverpool, City and, well, just about everyone else really, as well as his accusations that the players at Old Trafford had thrown their previous manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer “under the bus”, to name but a few.Match of the Day's Gary took last year's final defeat in his stride, continually reminding us throughout the tournament: “I’m not a pundit.”Want to be on the ball with all of the latest football news?Well then sign up for the brilliant Daily Star football email newsletter!From the latest transfer news to the agenda-setting stories, get it all in your email inbox - don't miss a thing.It only takes a matter of seconds.Simply type your email address into the box at the top of this article and hit 'subscribe'.And that's it, job done.
