Official: Tottenham Hotspur Captain Robbie Keane Moves To Celtic On Six Month Loan

Tottenham Hotspur captain Robbie Keane has moved to Celtic in a six month loan deal, in what is arguably the biggest transfer on deadline day.

The Irish international has had a frustrating season at White Hart Lane and found it difficult to hold down a regular starting place in Harry Redknapp's side.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, the Spurs boss earlier confirmed that talks were taking place: "I don't think it's been sorted yet but it looks like it probably will happen."

"It's a good move. Robbie needs to play,” added Redknapp.

"He's too good a player not to be starting here regularly. He wants to play all the time.

"It's been difficult to guarantee Robbie a starting place at the moment.

"He's not a happy man when he's not playing regularly.

"But he loves his football; he's a great trainer, a great man about the place."

Celtic manager Tony Mowbray had previously ruled out a move for the player after being linked with him before Christmas, claiming that the Hoops could not afford the striker's wages.

However, Keane will now be performing in the SPL for the rest of the season hoping to help the club he supports finish on top.
