Keane reckons McClean can make a Euros splash with the Republic of Ireland.
"He's enjoyed playing under Martin, he's had a break there. Obviously Brucie signed him, and I can understand why he was a bit wary of playing a young player in a struggling team, but Martin's gone the other way and he's been a good asset.
"McClean might be a surprise package because the other teams won't have seen too much of him.
"He's a big, strong boy, he can get you goals, he's a threat. If he can bring his club form to the team, I can see him making that starting XI."
