Eck says Aston Villa can handle Keane departure

Aston Villa boss Alex McLeish says they can handle the departure of on-loan Robbie Keane back to LA Galaxy.

The experienced striker ready to return to the MLS, McLeish faces a shortage of options in attack.

He claimed this is not a problem which is not concerning him, saying: "We've got people like Gabriel Agbonlahor missing tonight.

"Stephen Ireland can play in Robbie's position. He has played that [role] to great effect in recent weeks."
