Keane still has a Tottenham future

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp has denied rumours that he wants to sell his captain Robbie Keane, who was said to be the orchestrator behind Spurs secret Christmas party in Dublin, reports The Guardian. Keane has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane in the January transfer window, with Celtic thought to be interested in the striker, and has recently slipped behind Jermain Defoe and Peter Crouch in the pecking order.

Since returning to Tottenham from Liverpool last January, Keane has struggled to regain his best form, and has only scored six goals in the league, four of which came in the game against Burnley.

"Robbie is the captain and that wasn't going to change," Redknapp added. "Not a chance, and it never, ever entered my mind, I was never going to change it.

"I don't want to sell Robbie, there's not too many Robbie Keane's about in the game. He has enthusiasm and knowledge, a lot of things that he brings into the game so he's certainly not a player we'd want to lose.

"He's still a big part, very much so. When we brought him here it coincided with a terrific run we had last year. He came and gave the place a real lift, and it's been the same this year."
