Keane pleads not guilty to alleged road rage row

Roy Keane has denied committing a public order offence in an alleged road rage incident with a taxi driver.

Mr Keane, 43, is said to have behaved aggressively towards cabbie Fateh Kerar, 44, near traffic lights in Ashley Road, Altrincham, near Manchester, in the UK, on January 30.

The assistant Republic of Ireland coach did not attend a brief hearing at Trafford Magistrates’ Court yesterday but a not guilty plea was entered on his behalf by his lawyer.

He is accused of causing harassment, alarm or distress to Mr Kerar, a Section 4A Public Order offence.

The court heard the prosecution will call two witnesses, understood to be Mr Kerar and a taxi passenger, while the defence will call Mr Keane and an additional witness.

No CCTV of the incident was captured, the court also heard. Mr Keane will face trial at Manchester Magistrates’ Court on June 19.

Mr Kerar, from Altrincham, says an altercation took place after he and his passenger noticed Roy Keane in his Range Rover.
