ROY KEANE HAS pleaded not guilty over an alleged road rage incident in January, according to reports.

Sky News reports that the Ireland assistant boss entered the plea today at Trafford Magistrates Court.

The hearing for the public order charge was originally scheduled for 31 March, but was postponed.

Police said in a statement issued earlier this year that the summons was in relation to ”an incident on Friday 30 January 2015 when police were called to Ashley Road, Altrincham to a report that a man had behaved aggressively towards another man”.

A summons was posted on 2 March 2015 for Roy Keane (10/08/1971) to his home address in Hale to appear before Trafford Magistrates court [...] for a Section 4A Public Order offence.

It is claimed that Keane confronted a taxi driver in the town centre after getting out of his Range Rover.

According to RTÉ News, no witnesses will be called except for Keane and the taxi driver.

Keane did not appear in court today.
