Liverpool hero John Aldridge is delighted to see fellow Irishman Robbie Keane now at Anfield.
"Anyone who cares about Irish soccer should hope Robbie succeeds at Liverpool as we need him to be at his very best if we are to have a chance of qualifying for the next World Cup," he wrote in his column for the Sunday World.
''No disrespect to Tottenham, but the team he will be playing for this season is a class above what he has been used to of late, but I believe the three-man goal threat of Robbie, Fernando Torres and Steven Gerrard will frighten the best of defenses this season.'
"'He does not always show his best form when he is trying to lead the national team. Maybe he tries a little too hard to answer his many critics in Ireland. But what Robbie needs to remember is that he is a top-class player and a very clever one as well.
''This move should help him move his career onto the next level.''
