Vincent Hogan: King Robbie will hold court in league without majesty

You could identify something of a sneer in much of the coverage of Robbie Keane's move to Celtic last week. As the crow flies, Glasgow's East-end is a little less than 400 miles from North London but, for Keane, it must have felt like he was all but swapping galaxies.
Robbie is on a reputed £68,000 a week to score goals against the likes of Hamilton and Falkirk. Short of having to do so blindfolded and wearing ankle-chains, this shouldn't unduly stretch him.
Actually, unleashing Keane on your average SPL defence seems a bit like hiring Max Clifford to explain a parking ticket.
