Irish FA backs Keane over hotel 'incident'

Republic of Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane has the "full support" of the Football Association of Ireland after "inaccurate" reports of an incident at the team hotel near Dublin.
Police were called to the Portmarnock Hotel following an incident with a member of the public.
"We wish to clarify that Roy Keane called the Gardai following the incident," read an FAI statement.
The Republic face Scotland on Friday in a Euro 2016 qualifier at Celtic Park.
The FAI statement added: "The manager, Martin O'Neill, and the FAI are fully aware of the circumstances surrounding this event, and the assistant manager has their full support."
Former Manchester United midfielder Keane, 43, won 67 Republic of Ireland caps between 1991 and 2005.
In November 2013, the ex-Sunderland and Ipswich manager was appointed assistant boss to O'Neill, a role he combines with the same job at Aston Villa.
