Hang on, how many teams did young Robbie Keane support?
Keane – big football fan
If you ever pluck up the courage, walk slowly to the back of a bus, and ask the group of terrifying youngsters – with their pot, and their homemade “shivs” – which football team they support.
One of two things will happen. Either you’ll disappear under a dust cloud of angry feet and fists for daring to be so old and still talking to them. Or, each one will say exactly one team.
Unless, that is, one of them happens to be a member of the Robbie Keane family. In which case, it’ll be two.
As the Scottish transfer window slowly came down, Celtic made a grab for the Irishman on loan, with Harry Redknapp happy for the deal to go through, being that apparently Robbie had supported Celtic as a boy.
“He’s a big Celtic man, it’s a dream come true for him.”
Yet, compare that to Keane’s move to Liverpool just a couple of short years ago, and you might remember him saying this:
“I’ve been waiting for this day since I was a kid. Everyone knows I am a massive Liverpool fan, so to be sitting here today in a Liverpool tracksuit is a dream come true.”
Begging the question – does Robbie Keane just support absolutely everyone?
