It would have been a long shot, but you have to bet that Mick McCarthy made an enquiry about former Wolves forward Robbie Keane.
He wouldn’t have expected it to go very far, his £70,000 a week wages at Spurs would have been to big a hurdle, but if you don’t ask you don’t get.
West Ham United would have had a similar feeling when they gave Redknapp a call, but Celtic boss Tony Mowbray had the benefit of knowing that Keane’s dream was to play for Celtic one day and now it’s going to happen as Keane agreed a loan move to Celtic on transfer deadline day.
‘Robbie Keane`s too good a player not to be starting. I think it`s a move that appeals to him. He`s a big Celtic man and to play for them – he`s a bit like Roy Keane, he dreams of playing for Celtic one day. And we`re strong in that position up front.” Spurs boss Redknapp told Sky Sports News.
Vital Wolves Comment: Good luck to Robbie in the SPL.
