Cardiff manager Neil Warnock believes a resolution will be reached between Roy Keane and Harry Arter in the coming weeks after their bust-up.

Harry Arter was omitted from the squad for Republic of Ireland’s matches with Wales and Poland and national team coach Martin O’Neill revealed it was because of a bust-up with Roy Keane.

Warnock says he has had a conversation with Arter and has advised him to get on with his football.

“I spoke to him early doors. My advice to him was: ‘Say nothing and get on with your football’,” Warnock told Sky Sports.

“He loves his country and wants to play for them again. We are talking about grown-up people and I am sure that will be sorted.

“You get rows like this a lot of the time and I think Martin will make sure that is sorted in the next few weeks.

“I am sure there are lessons to be learned by everybody. Martin doesn’t need me to tell him that Harry is a good player to have in the squad.

“I was quite pleased he didn’t go away from a selfish point of view.

“Roy is Roy. He was the only guy that spoke to me when I got the sack at Sheffield United and I will never forget that. That was a bit of class.

“I am sure Roy will deal with the situation in the right way in the cold light of day.”
