In Pictures | 15 lesser-seen photographs of Roy Keane in action

Twenty-one years after Roy Keane delivered a masterclass performance in the heart of Manchester United's midfield that saw his club through to the Champions League final, we collated a series of lesser-seen images of the Cork native during his playing days. 

A performance played down by nobody but Roy Keane himself ("It's like praising the postman for delivering your letters"), after falling behind to two early goals in Turin, Keane, scoring Manchester United's first goal on the night, is widely regarded with driving on his teammates around him.

Unfortunately booked and ruled out of the final that would take place in Barcelona, the club captain was roundly celebrated for the astounding effort he put in despite these sorry circumstances.

For your consideration on this game's 21st anniversary then, here are a selection of images of Roy Keane in action that you may well not have seen before.
