Keane will return to Spurs – Jordan

Tottenham first-team coach Joe Jordan insists there is no chance of

Robbie Keane remaining at Celtic beyond the end of his loan period.

Keane, 29, joined the Glasgow giants until the end of the

season in January and has so far weighed in with eight goals,

including a hat-trick in Saturday’s Scottish Cup win over

Kilmarnock.

However, Jordan is adamant the Republic of Ireland

international still has a big role to play at Spurs.

He told the Sunday Herald: “Without a doubt [Keane will

return], he’s the captain.

“Harry [Redknapp] brought him back here and he was a major

player in getting us out of trouble last season, not just on the

pitch, but in the dressing room as well.

“He was an influential guy, he’s a leader, and there’s not

many of them going about. It wasn’t just the player, it was the

person we wanted.”
