Last night in Dublin, the Irish football community were ‘keen’ (poor pun, I know – moving on..) to show their appreciation for Robbie Keane at the FAI awards and in doing so inducted him into their Hall of Fame.



Robbie, now 36-years-old applied his trade for Tottenham Hotspur on two occasions (2002 – 2008 and 2009 – 2011) making 238 appearances, scoring 91 goals. Not only that he`s Ireland’s record goalscorer having bagged 68.


Former Republic of Ireland manager Mick McCarthy made the following RTE Sport message.



Steven Gerrard, Michael Carrick, a certain bloke by the name of Dimitar Berbatov and living legend, Pele lead the Keano tributes!

‘Remember, you and me, on the pitch,’ Berbatov said.



Congratulations, Robbie and thanks for the memories.

  • The thing about the Keane/Berbatov partnership was they didn’t just both score goals, they also provided most of the assists for each other. It was almost as if the midfield was redundant at times. These days with only one striker we aren’t going ton see another partnership like it.
