Roy Keane and Ian Wright clash in ‘childish’ argument over Liverpool’s Anfield sign

Roy Keane and Ian Wright clashed on Wednesday night over whether players should touch Liverpool’s Anfield sign before matches. A whole host of Reds players touch the sign in the tunnel before running onto the pitch, with some opposition stars even taking it upon themselves to do the same thing. But Keane labelled Wright as “childish” after the former Arsenal striker admitted he used to do it during visits to the famous stadium.

“Of course I touched it,” Wright said on ITV ahead of Liverpool’s FA Cup clash with Norwich City on Wednesday evening.

“When I went out with the guys I would not touch it because you would never know whether it would be deemed as a bit disrespectful.

“But you have to touch it don’t you – it’s such a fantastic stadium.”

And Keane was not amused following Wright’s admission.

“Of course not,” Keane responded when asked if he used to acknowledge the sign.

“It is traditional for English players but not for me. It’s childish Wrighty – why did you touch it? What did you get out of it? Did it benefit you in any way?”
