Former Manchester United star John O'Shea has opened up on the infamous Highbury tunnel row between Roy Keane and Patrick Vieira in 2005, revealing how 'clever' Gary Neville was in the dressing room before kick-off.

Reigning champions Arsenal and serial Premier League winners Manchester United met at Highbury in February 2005, and the fierce clash was preceded by a tempestuous bust-up between the two former captains.

The incident was sparked by Vieira picking a fight with Keane's team-mate Neville, who told the Manchester United dressing room before kick-off about his altercation with the Arsenal midfielder.

As the players prepared to walk out on to the pitch, furious Keane was heard firing expletives and pointing aggressively at the Gunners captain.

O'Shea, now part of Wayne Rooney's coaching staff at Birmingham, has opened up on the incident, explaining how 'clever' Neville managed to bait the passionate reaction out of his captain.
