ROY KEANE scoffed at the warm farewell to Manchester United’s Nemanja Matic and accused Ralf Rangnick of treating the 1-1 home win against Chelsea like a ‘testimonial’.
Old Trafford legend Keane taunted Matic for saying United will always be in my heart and attacked Rangnick for signing Juan Mata rather than shooting for the win with young Subs.
Matic, 33, waved goodbye to fans as he left the pitch ahead of a free transfer this summer.
And the 34-year-old midfielder Mata also seems to be leaving the club.
Serbian presenter Matic told Sky Sports: “It was a pleasure, an honor to play at Old Trafford for five years.
“Three games to go and United will always be in my heart – along with Chelsea, of course, as I also played for Chelsea.

“It was an honor for me to be part of everything.”
But Keane made the Sky Sports team laugh as he mimicked footballers professing their love for their clubs.
The ex-United hardman sneered: “Matic is talking about me leaving… ‘I had a great time, Man Utd will always be in my heart… oh, and Chelsea by the way… oh, and Benfica – don’t forget them’.”
But Keane’s criticism became even more scathing when he accused Rangnick of being sentimental about aging players.

The Irishman said: “Mata came on again for Man United tonight, he’s come on in the last couple of games.
“You’ve got some young kids on the bench – get ’em in.
“It’s like a tribute to Mata, I thought it was his testimony tonight.
“You are Man United, you fight for points, you play for pride.
“It’s all like if we give him a game, we’ll bring it [Phil] Jones continues, everyone gets applause’.
“You are there to try and win a football game for Man Utd.
“Forget that whole ‘oh we’re giving someone 20 minutes because they’re leaving in a couple of weeks’ – actually you should have left two years ago, a bunch of them.”
