    The Old Trafford icon sported a bushy moustache, having shaved off his iconic beard for the World Cup final last month.

    On that occasion Keane had an impressive moustache complete with a soul patch under his bottom lip before he shaved off the soul patch and just kept the hair on his upper lip.

    However, Keane returned to his former stomping ground at Nottingham Forest tonight to watch them face United.

    His two old clubs were facing off in the first-leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final, which United won 3-0.

    Another wrote: “Roy Keane’s moustache has left the building.”

    A fellow viewer said: “RIP Roy Keane’s Moustache.”
