AP MCCOY aimed a brutal dig towards Tottenham legend Robbie Keane at Cheltenham Festival.
McCoy was speaking live on ITV when he spotted Keane on the podium for the trophy presentation to Willie Mullins and Tony Bloom after Energumene's victory in the Queen Mother Champion Chase.

McCoy said: "Ex-Tottenham player, he's never been on a winning podium before has he?"
However, Keane in fact won the 2008 League Cup with Tottenham.
And this was a fact he refused to let slide, with McCoy later revealing Keane had reminded him of his 2008 victory off-air.
