Man Utd legend Roy Keane looks far from happy as Salford owner and potential new boss watches 1-1 draw with Crawley

ROY KEANE wore a familiar stone-cold expression as he watched his Salford side draw 1-1 with Crawley.

The Manchester United legend was in attendance at Moor Lane alongside former team-mate Nicky Butt.

Roy Keane, linked with taking over as Salford manager, was in the stands for the 1-1 draw with Crawley

Both Red Devils heroes are part of the Project 92 Limited group – alongside David Beckham, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes and Gary and Phil Neville – that part-own Salford City.

And with Keane not on Sky Sports duty for Manchester United vs Chelsea, he made the most of a free afternoon to watch his side – currently being managed by Scholes.

But he could not mastermind a victory as George Francomb cancelled out former United striker James Wilson’s second-half opener.

The result leaves Salford eighth after eight games in League Two with three wins, four draws and just one defeat.

But it was more disappointment for Keane and Salford after throwing another lead away.

A fortnight ago the Irishman, 49, was in the stands with Scholes and Gary Neville.

They watched Salford go 2-0 up early on but conceded twice – in the 86th and 93rd minutes – to draw 2-2 against Tranmere.

That result spelled the end for former boss Graham Alexander and Scholes was put in charge temporarily.

Paul Scholes oversaw his third game in temporary charge but is way down at 25-1 to land the job permanently

They lost 1-0 to Port Vale last Saturday but recovered to stuff Southend 3-0 in midweek.

Richie Wellens is the current favourite to land the position permanently at 11-10 with Warren Joyce and Paul Cook also in contention.

Keane is fourth on the list at 6-1 while Scholes is back at 25-1.
