What Ally McCoist said to make fun of Roy Keane as Rangers legend scoops Pundit of the Year
The 60-year-old beat the likes of ex-Celtic striker Chris Sutton, Alan Shearer, Ian Wright and Roy Keane to land the award - and it was the latter who was the butt of McCoist's one-liner after Keane’s former side Manchester United suffered a record 7-0 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield the previous day.
“I don’t think Roy’s had a worse 48 hours to be fair!" McCoist quipped on stage to spark howls of laughter from the floor. “In all seriousness I genuinely did not expect to be standing winning this when I look at the competition - the competition was fierce.
"I love my job. I’m the luckiest man alive. I really am. Rangers centre forward, Scotland centre forward and working with the guys at talkSPORT and ITV. And I love every minute of it, I have to tell you.”
McCoist finished on a more emotional note, referencing the winning Documentary of the Year, which went to BBC Breakfast programme Rob Burrow: Living with MND, which charted the former rugby league player's battle with Motor Neurone Disease.
McCoist said: “I didn’t think my night could any better after meeting Rob Burrow and his family. I was a big pal of Doddie Weir’s and those two guys epitomise the spirit of the human being. It’s fantastic.”
