Andy Keogh's unforgettable partnership with Harry Kane

"I was banging on the manager's door to re-sign him..."

They're two strikers in red hot form and though they may now be firing in different continents these days, Andy Keogh and Harry Kane once formed a very deadly duo for Millwall back in the 2011/12 season.

Current Perth Glory striker Keogh spent two and a half seasons at The Den with his first year at the club seeing a young Kane join him up front on loan from Tottenham

The pair would hit it off scoring a combined 19 goals across all competitions as Millwall finished 16th in the Championship. 

That would be the sign of things to come for Kane, who remains a striking partner Keogh pinpoints as one of his best even at such an early stage of his career. 

"Harry Kane came to Millwall on loan and we had six months together and that was a partnership I really thrived on," Keogh told the Inside Glory podcast.

"I think we had 16 games together and we scored 10-11 goals each, got Millwall out of the relegation zone and went from there. 

"I was banging on the manager's door to re-sign him for next season but he went onto bigger and better things. 

"Great attitude, hungry for goals, just hungry to shoot from anywhere. He was very good. He needed to work on his fitness side of things, physical attributes, and he did, and I think everyone can see where that's taken him to."

Then Millwall boss Kenny Jackett singled out Kane and Keogh for praise after a 3-1 win over Burnley.

"Keogh and Kane up front were excellent – they really did give us a platform to work off," Jackett said.

"They constantly gave a good Burnley defence problems and scored a goal a piece as well. They gave us a real threat at the back of Burnley, which we haven't always had this season."

Both strikers continue to bang in the goals with Keogh Glory's all-time leading goal scorer after first joining the club in 2014, while Kane took out the 2018 World Cup Golden Boot and bagged a vital double for Spurs on Wednesday morning in the Champions League
