The 35-year-old striker will not train with his team-mates until the middle of next week at the earliest after suffering a calf injury last weekend.

However as the rest of the squad went through their paces in bright sunshine at Fota Island on Friday morning, Keane, who had watched the warm-ups, took to a mountain bike under the supervision of medical staff.

Jonathan Walters did not train once again as he nursed a kick to the calf, but hamstring victim James McCarthy was in the thick of the action for the second successive day after shaking of a hamstring injury.
