Gary Neville cheekily put Roy Keane in a tight spot during a game surrounding their old Manchester United team-mates.

The iconic duo, currently part of ITV's punditry squad for Euro 2024 in Germany, have been mainly analysing Gareth Southgate's England and the tournament's big hitters. Yet, they took a brief detour to reminisce about their glory days at United.

In a clip shared on social media, Neville and Keane played a guessing game for The Overlap involving cryptic clues about some of their ex-team-mates. However, the fun and games turned slightly awkward when Neville was presented with a picture of former England striker Teddy Sheringham.

In his quick teaser, Neville told Keane: "You didn't like him... that could be anybody. Jeez, I've got a list!" This prompted former United skipper Keane to uncomfortably guess: "No, you shouldn't say I didn't like him... Jordi [Cruyff]? Or Teddy?"

Neville couldn't help but laugh as he confirmed Sheringham was indeed the answer. Keane quickly jumped to his own defence, explaining: "That's wrong. I didn't mind Teddy," adding, "I just didn't get on with him. We had a fallout but that's just working."

Keane, who also quipped about being the "greatest United midfielder ever", shed light on two other past United strikers. He praised new United coach Ruud van Nistelrooy as "the best finisher we played with".

Another clue from Keane reminded Neville of his torrid battles with Louis Saha, describing the former Fulham talisman as the “striker we signed who previously ran you ragged". Neville has admitted that Sir Alex Ferguson once asked his players for a rare piece of advice after coming up against Saha in 2001.

"Sir Alex never asked us which players we should sign or never asked us information about players he was going to sign," the former defender told Sky Sports. "But after we played Fulham one time in the FA Cup, he actually asked us as defenders, would we sign Louis Saha? We all said 'yes' straight away."

"Louis was a brilliant, brilliant player," Neville said. "He gave me absolute nightmares when I used to play against him when he played for Fulham - him and Luis Boa Morte."
