WAYNE ROONEY recalled a hilarious bust-up he had with Roy Keane over turning off rugby league to watch X-FACTOR.
Following an away game, former United captain Keane was left fuming after Rooney turned over the rugby to watch the singing show.
Rooney, 36, revealed: “We played Newcastle away and afterwards Roy was watching the rugby league.
“When he went out of the room I put X Factor on and hid the remote.
“He came back in and asked who turned it over.
“I said, ‘I don’t know.’ He went up to the plug, pulled it out and said no one could watch anything.
“At midnight I was asleep and there was a bang on the door. It was security and he said, ‘Roy said, Where’s the remote?’
“The next morning we go downstairs to get our pre-match meal and I’m stood next to Roy.
“I said, ‘Roy, you OK mate? Did you find that remote?’ He said, ‘What the f**k has it got to do with you?’
“Roy is not everyone’s cup of tea but I really like him.”
Keane, who was fired by United in 2005 following an never-before-seen TV outburst, offered his take on the incident last year.

Keane, 50, said: “We certainly didn’t have an argument, let me tell you.
“I like my rugby league and yeah, someone did change the channel and I wasn’t happy.
“But we didn’t have an argument about it. I came down for breakfast the next day and Wayne said ‘Did you find the control?’
“So I told him where to go. If that’s an argument, God help us.
“I certainly didn’t respect Wayne because he stood up to me and wanted to watch the X Factor.
“I had a lot of respect for Wayne because I thought he was a brilliant player.
“I wouldn’t say I warmed to the guy, [but] I certainly didn’t dislike him.
“But the lad’s on a different wavelength, different banter and if hiding the control was his type of banter then… not for me.”
