Keane opens Bhoys account
08 Feb 2010 - 10:52:36
Celtic manager Tony Mowbray was pleased to see loan signing Robbie Keane get off the mark for the Bhoys in their 4-2 Scottish Cup fifth round win at Dunfermline Athletic.
Keane was introduced as a half-time substitute at East End Park and got his name on the scoresheet from the penalty spot midway through the second half, with a clash against Hearts on the horizon.
Mowbray said afterwards: "I hope Robbie is fired up for Wednesday, that is why he only played 45 minutes.
"Three 90 minutes in seven days for the boy is probably asking for trouble injury-wise and I think he agreed.
"But I am delighted Robbie is here because he adds that finesse in the final third that sometimes makes that difference in games.
"Robbie is a very humble guy who doesn't carry a superstar ego around with him. He just wants to train and play and pass his advice on.
"He is just a good guy to have around and he loves his football."
