Robbie Keane has probably moved closer to leaving the Tottenham club in January, after it has been revealed that he had a dressing room row with his manager Harry Redknapp.
Robbie Keane – on loan to Newcastle in January?
But the news is old in that the row occurred after the 1-0 loss at West Ham back on September 25th, when Robbie came on as substitute for Aaron Lennon after 66 minutes, and had a couple of chances he didn’t put away.
Harry was not happy after the game, and in the dressing room is said to have confronted the Irish striker over the two chances he missed.
A source who was there said:
“It was pretty heated in the dressing room.”
But we’re sure that kind of thing happens all the time after a defeat, when everybody is frustrated at the result, but Robbie is still not getting too much playing time at the London club, and that’s with Jermaine Defoe still out injured with his ankle injury.
There’s a chance Newcastle could take the player on loan in January, after their attempt to get him on a season long loan deal in late August failed at the last minute. And we’re sure Celtic would take him again on loan too, but the class of football north of the border is hardly tat standard of play in England’s top division.
But it seems clear Robbie will be leaving the Tottenham club and soon, if he ever wants to play regularly again in the Premier League.
It’s a waste of his talent to be sitting on the subs bench for every game.
