Robbie Keane is absolutely certain that his good pal Richard Dunne still has plenty to offer Ireland after his contribution to QPR's successful promotion push.

The big defender produced a heroic display in their promotion play-off final win over Derby at Wembley, evoking memories of his best performances in a green jersey.

Dunne opted out of Ireland's end-of-season games and has yet to appear under new manager Martin O'Neill as used the international windows to facilitate rest and recovery in his first season after a year out through injury.

The 34-year-old wants to be considered for September's Euro 2016 qualifiers, and O'Neill has said he will assess the situation closer to the time.

Asked if Dunne still had something to offer, Keane replied "Yes, 100pc" without hesitation.

"I'm delighted for Richard," he continued. "He's certainly a player who deserves to be in the Premier League. I spoke to him last week and he's obviously buzzing. "I didn't actually see the game against Derby but he got man of the match didn't he? I'd heard he had a tremendous game."
