Keane sick of Walters story, Colback not loan target

IPSWICH Town boss Roy Keane refused to comment on Jon Walters’ outburst, surrounding the fall-out between the two on the eve of Walters’ move to Stoke.

IPSWICH Town boss Roy Keane refused to comment on Jon Walters’ outburst, surrounding the fall-out between the two on the eve of Walters’ move to Stoke.

Keane stripped Walters of the captaincy, before the first home match of the season against Burnley, after the front-runner was linked with a move away from Portman Road, and his late withdrawal from the Carling Cup trip to Exeter due to ill health.

Walters was quoted over the weekend as saying that he even photographed his own vomit, to prove to Keane that he was ill.

“I have no comment to make,” said Keane.

“It’s all history. We should move on, but it’s part and parcel of football. I have nothing to add to this.”

Walters had insisted that he didn’t like to be painted as a “bad egg” by Keane.
