Keegan is a father of two, and made the decision to open up about his sexuality following the break-down of his marriage in an interview with the Sunday Mirror.

“At first I couldn’t even say ‘I’m gay’ in my head, let alone out loud. Now I feel like I’m letting out a long breath that I’ve held in for a long time. I had a wife and kids. I’ve been a builder, doorman, worked in factories, I play rugby. I tick every macho box. How could I be gay? I’m from Batley for goodness sake. No one is gay in Batley,”

“The worst part is telling people closest to you. Even if they don’t take it well, which some of my family didn’t, they’ve got their head round it now.”

“There might be other players in the same position I was. If there are I’d tell them to just be honest with themselves. The support from my teammates and other rugby league players has really surprised me, it’s all been positive.”
