Roy Keane has slammed Manchester United after their 7-0 humiliation at the hands of Liverpool, saying the ‘circus is back in town’.

The former United captain was left fuming after seeing his old side suffer their worst ever Premier League defeat, and he was particularly unimpressed by the sight of some of the players joking with Liverpool staff after the game.

Keane, who won seven Premier League titles and the Champions League during his time at Old Trafford, said the result was ‘unacceptable’ and that the players should have been ‘embarrassed’ by their performance.

“I think the circus is back in town,” Keane said on Sky Sports. “I think the players should be embarrassed. I think the players should be embarrassed by their performance.

“I think the players should be embarrassed by the way they’ve conducted themselves after the game. I think it’s unacceptable.”

Keane was particularly critical of the players’ attitude after the game, saying they should have been ‘hurt’ by the result and not joking around with the Liverpool staff.

“I think the players should be hurt,” he said. “I think the players should be embarrassed. I think the players should be embarrassed by the way they’ve conducted themselves after the game.

“I think it’s unacceptable. I think the players should be embarrassed by the way they’ve conducted themselves after the game. I think it’s unacceptable.”

Keane also criticised the club’s hierarchy, saying they should have done more to prevent the result.

“I think the club should be embarrassed,” he said. “I think the club should be embarrassed by the way they’ve conducted themselves after the game. I think it’s unacceptable.

“I think the club should have done more to prevent this result. I think the club should have done more to make sure the players were better prepared for the game.”

Keane’s comments come after United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted his side had been ‘outplayed’ by Liverpool and that the result was ‘unacceptable’.

United have now lost four of their last five Premier League games and are in danger of slipping out of the top four.

Keane’s comments are sure to add further pressure on Solskjaer and the club’s hierarchy, and it remains to be seen if they can turn things around in the coming weeks.
