Former Hoops striker Robbie Keane has finally let the football world know who his boyhood club is, and it’s not Celtic.

The Irishman signed for Celtic on a six month loan deal back in 2010, the transfer was funded personally by Dermot Desmond in a bid to please fans.

The striker was signed as Tony Mowbray was running a sinking ship and couldn’t manage to last the season, luckily Neil Lennon was there to take the reigns.

When Keane signed back in 2010, the striker said:

“I am a Celtic fan and did not have to ask much about it.

“I always wanted to play for Celtic and it works for all parties.”

Recently the striker was interviewed and admitted that Liverpool was the club he has supported since a boy.

“I just love football!” Robbie told Sky as cited by SunSport.

“I think it was clear to see that I was a Liverpool fan so I was very, very fortunate to have had the opportunity to have played with them.”

Opinion Time

It is possible that Keane was like most of the Irish nation who support Celtic but also had a top team in England.

Either way it was a pleasure to have seen Robbie Keane play in the famous green and white hoops.
