5ft 8 Rob and Kevin
I’ve got pictures of myself and him [Maradona] together because he wanted my shirt after the game and I tower above him. I’m barely 5 feet 8 inches (173 centimetres). He would be about 5ft 6ins but he was enormous on a football field.

He looks 5'6 at best in the picture above. Not as low as 5'5 though.

He doesn't looks 5'6. Let alone 5'6.5. More like 5'5

Just as young footballer, Raheem Sterling, proved during this year's summertime football fest, you don't need to be tall to be an ace footballer. ⚽

Kev gets 5ft7 for his peak and 5ft6.25 for today's height.

When he was the subject of “This Is Your Life” in the seventies, Eamon Andrews asked him outright how tall he was and Keegan replied, “If I take off these platform shoes, I drop down to about 5’ 6”.” I don’t know if that particular episode of the series is on youtube but if it is you needn’t take my word for it, you can hear it for yourselves.

Apologies Rob I'd not noticed you had added it.

The pic I posted they look ~ 2inches difference. I wouldn't call that 'towering' someone, but there you go.
Editor Rob
yeah he could pass for 5ft 5 with Keegan

Here's a quote from Kevin in the last few days paying tribute to Diego Maradona
"I've got pictures with him and myself because he wanted my shirt after the game and I tower above him. I'm barely five foot eight, but he was enormous on a football field.

he’s more than 150 pounds in this picture for sure

He's over one-and-a-half times my weight - but not my height! 😄♎

5ft7 for Kevin's peak height and judging from the photo, I'd say he's 5ft6.25 nowadays.

5'6 flat and 5'6.5 peak is my guess.At most id say a solid 168cm for him-a fraction over 5'6.
Editor Rob
He is rising up on one foot in this pose, though I didn't actually think it helped his height much. Sometimes it can add a cm...emily bett rickards was doing the same thing as have a few others.

Think the average guess is about right, I think. Maybe 5'6.25 at lunchtime, so would expect him to measure a few mm under that in the afternoon. 5'6-5'6.25 range. 5'6.25 may be possible measurement if standing tallest though.

In this photo, he looked 5ft6 / 168 cm. Another great pic Rob.
Editor Rob
It's a shame Keegan never continued managing, he was a character.
Parker said on 10/Jun/18
Loooks marginally taller than Ricky Hatton in pics with Rob.

Look who has popped up as a random celeb! I am terribly excited! - I'm with Rob on this one!
Nik said on 7/Jun/18
I could see Kevin Keegan being 5'6.25" but no less! He is more than likely in the 5'6.25" - 5'6.5" range and it must be said that it is great to find out his true height! He is a legendary manager who delivered exciting football that was a joy to watch!
Guest66 said on 7/Jun/18
Rob, 5’6” flat now and 5’7” peak, how about that ?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure he was just 5ft 6 flat, though of course I could be first thought was he seemed in 5ft 6.25-6.5 range.
Andrea said on 7/Jun/18
I agree, World.
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Jun/18
Kevin hasn't lost much over the years, has he? He can have 5ft6 from me; there definitely seems to be a good 2" difference there, at least!
Parker said on 7/Jun/18
He's 67 and had some back surgery. Could he have dropped an inch Rob?
Editor Rob
I'm not sure he looked 5ft 7.5 during his playing days, I'd still go with 5ft 7 and in the 5ft 6.25-.5 range today.
World Citizen said on 6/Jun/18
Looks no more than 5 ft 6 to me
Anonim said on 6/Jun/18
I see 167 cm, not more. Did you have the same shoes? Was he standing in a straight posture?
Editor Rob
Normal shoe, pretty close to 1 inch like myself. I think he looks close to what he is, somewhere in 5ft 6-6.5 range, maybe measuring right around 169 with best posture...
Parker said on 6/Jun/18
Great addition and bang on the money IMO. Alan Ball always claimed 5'6 and given that on most websites - I see little difference

It is great to see that Kevin Keegan has got a page and he is a very welcome addition to celebheights! I have got to say that 5'6.5" seems possible for his current height but I think that he topped the 5'7" level at his tallest so I am in no doubt as to the integrity of his height claims!

You are very lucky to have met him Rob! This Leeds United fan will offer Kevin Keegan 5'6.5"! - and 5'7.5" for his optimum height!
Editor Rob
During his playing days he could seem shorter than he was. In person today, he is at most 169cm.
