PADDY MCCOURT has extended well wishes to the retiring Robbie Keane as the former Spurs and Celtic striker hangs up his boots.
McCourt who just last month id the same sent out a top message on social media for a player he has a lot of time for.
Both of them played for Celtic at the same time – Keane’s stint at the club only four months long in a loan back under Tony Mowbray’s ill-fated time as manager

McCourt has taken up a youth role at Derry City in retirement and recently done a long form interview with the Celtic View as he looked over his Parkhead career.
Robbie Keane made only 19 appearances for the club but scored an impressive 16 goals in his time in Glasgow.
Celtic could not afford to keep him on a permanent basis and he moved back to Spurs that summer.
Like Paddy, we would like to wish Robbie all the best for the future.
