London - Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has been ordered to appear in court over an alleged 'road rage' row with a taxi driver, British police revealed on Thursday.

Keane, 43, is alleged to have got into an argument with taxi driver Fateh Kerar, 44, near traffic lights in Altrincham, Greater Manchester in January this year.

"A summons was posted for Roy Keane to his home address in Hale to appear before Trafford Magistrates court on 31 March for a Section 4A Public Order offence," said a statement from Greater Manchester Police.

"This is 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."

Keane recently stepped down as assistant manager of Aston Villa to concentrate on a similar role with the Republic of Ireland.

The former Ireland captain, who was renowned for his aggressive, no-nonsense playing style, also works as a television pundit.
