Keane To Retire In Summer?

Keane To Retire In Summer?

Ex-United skipper Roy Keane has threatened to hang up his boots at the end of the season.

His long-term hip problems could force him to stop playing a year before his contract expires.

Keane: 'As I said, I will look at things in the summer. I'm enjoying being here and it is a great honour to play for Celtic, but I will look at it in the summer because I'm just being fair to everyone.

'I wanted to see how things went with injuries but I have picked up another one.
I want to see how the body is and how the hip is in the summer.

'These things tend to happen more now and I have to listen to the body, but I have not been feeling too bad.

'Because of the hip I am going to get one or two hamstring injuries, which is something of a side effect to having a hip problem.

'Maybe breaking forward is the problem. Things seemed to open up for me and with Neil (Lennon) sitting there, there is more of an opportunity for me to get forward and support the strikers.'

'I just felt a tug in the hamstring but hopefully it's not too bad. I should find out how serious it is on Tuesday.

Keane's thoughts were also with the late Jimmy Johnstone, who he dedicated the Hampden Park victory to. It's a brilliant win for him. It has been sad the last few days since his death, but it was really nice to celebrate his life in this way.

'The funeral and ceremony at the church were emotional so it was really nice we could do this for his family and the fans.'
