Since Robbie Keane returned from his loan spell at Celtic the Tottenham striker hasn’t had much too much to smile about. Limited playing time and a future that looks less than certain sum up the Ireland internationals current situation.
In recent weeks it has become evident that Keane’s future lies away from White Hart Lane. Today we take a look at a few clubs who could provide a new stomping ground for the striker.
First up, Celtic, Keane has already enjoyed a fruitful spell at the Glasgow club scoring 12 goals in 16 appearances. Keane is approaching the end of his career and Celtic would provide the perfect setting for his final few years. The striker, a catholic Irishman would arguably like to end his career at his boyhood club. However, It’s not hard to come to the conclusion that Keane could end up at Celtic, so lets look a couple of other more interesting propositions for the Spurs striker.
Robbie Keane is already a bit of a Journeyman so it wouldn’t surprise me if the striker found his way to a completely new experience in a new club. Aston Villa currently find themselves at the wrong end of the table and in need of some firepower. Could Keane be the solution? Furthermore, it seems apparent that Gerard Houllier, the Villa boss, is assembling a vibrant youthful team. Houllier has already brought in the experienced Pires, could Keane be his next acquisition.
Then there’s Everton. I’m not sure I’ve heard this rumour before, but for me it makes total sense. Everton are another team somewhat lacking firepower. They are a team that could make a strong push for Europe if only they had a player that could regularly find the net. Keane certainly fits the bill. Everton are a club that do not exactly have bundles to spend but it is thought that it wouldn’t cost an arm or a leg for the services of Keane, thus adding weight behind the idea Keane could be on his way up to Goodison Park.
There you have it! What do you think? Am I bonkers, or does it make as much sense to you as to does me?
