Roy Keane is set to take legal action against bookmakers Paddy power for the ad they produced before the Scotland game. 

The controversial billboard was plastered on a truck and parked outside the Aviva, and showed Roy Keane dressed up as Braveheart from the famous Mel Gibson movie of the same name about William Wallace. 

The message on the billboard read "You may take our points but at least we have our freedom (ya wee pussies)", and while it might be more offensive to the Scots in the wake of the referendum results, Keane claims that the advertisement infringed on his image rights, which is why he's taken the case. 

Keane's representatives have yet to comment on the story, but a spokesperson for Paddy Power said "it's with the lawyers, so obviously we can't talk about it, but hopefully they won't take our freedom to have a bit of craic".
