Carlos Cuellar says LA Galaxy striker Robbie Keane has been a revelation during his loan at Aston Villa.

The Spanish defender insists the claret and blues should celebrate his contribution rather than worry too much about his departure.

"We need to say to him 'thank-you for your performances'," said Cuellar to the Birmingham Mail.

"It is really a sad to lose him because he is playing so well and he has been very important for us. But we will try to win for him as well as for ourselves."
