Chelsea legend John Terry takes swipe at Roy Keane over Man Utd star Harry Maguire after he breaks his England record

JOHN TERRY has taken a swipe at Roy Keane over his comments labelling Harry Maguire as a 'disgrace'.

The former Chelsea skipper, 40, also congratulated Maguire for beating his record as highest-scoring England centre-back.

Maguire, 28, celebrated his goal against Albania on Friday night by cupping his hands to his ears, having received criticism for his poor form in recent weeks.

This led to criticism from Roy Keane, who felt the celebration was 'embarrassing'.

Terry, however, believes that Maguire should take no notice of the likes of Keane.

After the big defender opened the scoring against San Marino last night, beating Terry's tally of six England goals in the process, the ex-Three Lions skipper tweeted his support.

He wrote: "@HarryMaguire93 Congratulations mate @England Highest scoring defender ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️👏🏻.

"Let’s see if a few of these pundits talk about that."


After Keane's criticism on Friday, Maguire did his best to play down his celebration.

He told Sky Sports: "The celebration was a knee slide, it just came naturally to me.

"It's an amazing feeling to score for my country. It wasn't directed at anyone, it just came naturally to do that and open the scoring for England and get the important three points."

Terry isn't the first to criticise Keane's damning assessment.

Former England international Gabriel Agbonlahor accused the Irishman of 'bullying' Maguire – while Gareth Southgate claimed that he is just trying to 'stay relevant'.

Maguire's tally of seven goals in 41 caps is the highest for an England defender.

He famously notched his first against Sweden in the 2018 World Cup quarter-finals.

The former Leicester star has since netted against Ireland, Poland, Ukraine at Euro 2020, Hungary – and now Albania and San Marino.
