Roy Keane on Harry Maguire: "He puts his hands to his ears like he's shutting his critics up... it's embarrassing. He's been a disgrace last few months for Manchester United, he scores and he thinks he's going to shut his critics up, it's embarrassing."
Manchester United former captain criticized Maguire's celebration during England's 5-0 win over Albania terming it as embarrassing. Maguire scored the opening goal and celebrated by performing a knee slide while holding his ears, this celebration is always connected by silencing critics. Roy Keane did not take the celebration lightly claiming it as unapropriate.
Maguire has had a tough start to the season commiting many errors leading to goals at Manchester United and because of this, Keane thought that maybe he did not deserve to celebrate that way. According to Keane, a single goal against Albania cannot erase the mistakes Maguire has committed this season.
The English defender however defended himself claiming that the celebration was not meant to hurt anyone but it was just a normal celebration. Harry Maguire defending his goal celebration, "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." According to him, the celebration came naturally as he was overwhelmed by joy. He confirmed that he is always happy to help his national team by scoring.
His coach however claimed that he doesn't know where the celebration came for or what it meant. Southgate on Maguire’s celebration: “Is he a Hulk Hogan fan? I don’t know what the celebration was for. He is a fabulous player, two months ago he was in the Euros team of the tournament."
