Arsenal Fan Banned For Head-Butt Against Roy Keane


An Arsenal fan was given a three-year football banning order on Thursday after headbutting former Manchester United star in a “gratuitous and senseless act of violence”.

Scott Law, 43, was found guilty of common assault after clashing with Keane following Arsenal’s Premier League win over United at the Emirates Stadium on September 3.

Keane and fellow television pundit Micah Richards were walking to do their post-match analysis when the attack happened, a trial at a London magistrates court heard.

Former Republic of Ireland midfielder Keane was head-butted by Law and fell through some doors in the incident.

Law’s defence team said CCTV footage from inside the stadium showed Keane elbowing the defendant in the face.

Keane, 52, told the court: “I was just walking and, before I knew it, I was hit. I felt the contact and fell back through some doors.

“I was absolutely not expecting it… I was in shock”.

Keane said he suffered bruising on his chest and arms.

Law, who was sat beneath the Sky Sports studio during the match, claimed Keane “picked me out and started telling me to see him outside. He was pointing to doors in the box”.
