Manchester United legend Roy Keane has heaped massive praise on highly-rated Manchester United youngster James Garner.

The 21-year-old has done really well on loan at Nottingham Forest, and continues to grow from strength to strength.

Garner was given a start by manager Steve Cooper as they face Liverpool in the FA Cup quarter-finals, and Keane was pleased with his performance.

Speaking on ITV, Keane said: “He’s been [in] a really good partnership with [Ryan] Yatesy, they complement each other very well, he’s technically very good.

“He likes to dictate the play, sits a little bit deeper than Yates. Tough game for him today, this is a great experience for young players coming up against top players like Liverpool, great way to learn.”
