Robbie Keane started his career with Wolves as a teenager and clearly still holds a lot of affection for the club.

Keane came back for a charity evening at Wolves, alongside Matt Murray and Steve Bull.

In an interview with the Express and Star after that event, Keane spoke in glowing terms about the supporters.

Keane hit a hat-trick for Spurs at White Hart Lane after leaving Wolves but the travelling old gold fans still gave him a standing ovation and Keane said: “The other Spurs players genuinely couldn’t believe that.

 

“To this day the Wolves fans have been brilliant, and even after that Villa game when things were tricky, they were very respectful outside the ground afterwards.

“I think they see me as one of their own, coming through the ranks, and I think they understood it when I left with the bigger picture of the club’s finances and a player’s ambitions.

“The Wolves fans have always been spot-on with that, they have been brilliant to this day, and that’s why I always enjoy coming back so much.”
