Watch: Micah Richards catches out sheepish Roy Keane applying makeup

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane and ex-Manchester City defender Micah Richards are fast becoming everybody’s favourite odd couple.

Before Sky Sports’ coverage of Manchester City against Liverpool, Richards and Jamie Carragher caught football’s equivalent to Ebenezer Scrooge applying makeup to his face.

Carragher found the very notion hilarious, but Richards stole the show. Unable to contain his glee, the former City defender chortled with unrestrained abandon.

Keane took their reaction in good humour and continued to apply his makeup. However, it was possible to see the origins of a smile on his face. This may be the first recorded evidence of such a notion.

We’re pitching it now, Netflix should commission Keane and Richards their own series.
