Celtic sweat on Keane fitness

Celtic are on tenterhooks over the fitness of Robbie Keane ahead of Sunday's Old Firm derby at Ibrox. The Republic of Ireland international has not trained all week and will undergo a late fitness test to see if he can make the third Old Firm derby of the season.

Hoops boss Tony Mowbray refused to say what type of injury Keane was struggling with, but he will give all his injured players until the last minute to prove their fitness.

"I am not going to tell you what Robbie's injury is but he hasn't trained all week," noted Mowbray.

"I wouldn't want to say how big a blow it is or could be because we hope he will be fit but we will wait and see.

"I will give the injured players as long as we can.

"They will have to train tomorrow and have no reaction when they wake up on Sunday morning, so we will wait and see."
