thumbnail Hello,

Ireland's top goalscorer has said that he is always keen to look forward to the next challenge in his career as the Galaxy limber up for their playoff

LA Galaxy striker Robbie Keane has said that he is happy to let his goalscoring record speak for itself as he prepares for the MLS playoff game against Vancouver Whitecaps.

Speaking to reporters ahead of his side's playoff tie, Keane revealed that he was never one to regret his past and instead prefers to 'look forward'.

"Nah, I never look back. Never look back. Always look forward. Always. I've never done that, as a player, even through the good times and bad times," he told

"I'm one of those people in life as well – the next day, you know. Move on to the next day. No, I don't look back."

The Republic of Ireland captain was also asked if he felt he had achieved anything in his career or proven himself, and he issued a blunt response saying that he was content to let his goalscoring record 'speak for itself'.

"Prove myself to who?" he said. "I've played in the English Premiership for a long time. I've scored over 120 odd Premiership goals. I think you don't really have to. Llet the record speak for itself," concluded Keane.

Meanwhile, Ireland captain Keane was omitted from the recent Boys in Green squad to take on Greece, due to his commitments with LA Galaxy. "I said Robbie to wait," said Irish coach Giovanni Trapattoni at yesterday's press conference. "I spoke with him and no problem, we will see you in February."
