Football star Roy Keane has been issued with a court summons over an alleged road rage confrontation with a Greater Manchester taxi driver.

The Republic of Ireland assistant manager and ex-Manchester United captain is said to have confronted the driver in Altrincham on 30 January.

Police were called to Ashley Road to a report a man had "behaved aggressively towards another man".

Keane is due to appear at Trafford Magistrates' Court on 31 March.

Keane, 43, who lives in Hale, has previously managed Sunderland and Ipswich and left the role of assistant manager at Aston Villa in November.

His career also saw him play for League of Ireland side Cobh Ramblers, Nottingham Forest, Celtic and the Republic of Ireland.

He has also worked as a football pundit for ITV.
