Celtic confirm Keane capture

01 Feb 2010 - 20:56:06

Celtic have confirmed the capture of Tottenham Hotspur striker Robbie Keane on loan for the remainder of the season.

Keane, 29, has been allowed to leave White Hart Lane for the second time in his career after slipping down the pecking order this season.

The recent arrival of Eidur Gudjohnsen was expected to push Keane further out of the first-team picture and Spurs boss Harry Redknapp revealed the move was ideal for both the striker and the north London club.

"It's a good move as Robbie needs to play," he said on Monday evening when the deal was first mooted.

"He's too good a player not to be starting here regularly. He wants to play all the time.

"To go to Celtic is a dream come true for him anyway. I think it's a move that appeals to him."

The former Wolves, Coventry City, Internazionale and Leeds United striker left Spurs in a £20million deal in July 2008 after signing for Liverpool.

However, the Republic of Ireland captain returned to White Hart Lane just six months later for £13million after an ill-fated spell at Anfield.
