United dramatically won the game 2-1 thanks to last-gasp goals from Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

But club captain Keane was not in the side and on the pitch to leave the trophy due to a suspension picked up in the semis.

Peter Schmeichel instead lifted the trophy – but reflecting back Neville feels it should have been Keane.

He said on The Overlap: “When I look back now, you should have lifted the trophy really first time that night. On the pitch.”

Keane, looking bemused, replied: “Nah, I don’t agree with that.”

Neville then said: “Come on with your kit on.”

But Keane responded: “With shin pads on? No, no, no I don’t agree with that.

“I’m not against other people doing it, I know the rules have changed now I think you can be suspended.

“But at the time, I think I would have been really embarrassed, I would have been cringing.”

Although not named, Keane could referring to Chelsea legend Terry, who was also suspended for the 2012 final, against Bayern.

The defensive icon was red-carded in the semi-final against Barcelona and had to watch from the stands as the Blues beat Bayern on penalties.

But Terry joined the on-field celebrations and lifted Chelsea’s first ever Champions League trophy in a full kit.

The ex-England captain has been subject to years of memes and banter but he has gone on to reveal the reason behind his antics.

Terry said on SoccerAM: “I don’t know why people got so carried away with it.

“There were four or five other players in the same situation, it wasn’t just me!

“But because people don’t like me as much I got a bit more stick. It actually came from Uefa.

“In previous years they’d had players in suits but this time they wanted everyone in a kit.

“Not too many people know that. But no doubt about it, I was on early doors with my kit.”
