Madrid Ruined Their Chances

Madrid Ruined Their Chances

Real Madrid were favourites to sign Roy Keane but they asked for another week to think about it.

Keane: 'I spoke to Madrid and told them I wasn't prepared to wait another week.

'Coming up the motorway last night I was going over things. I got my head down last night after a chat with a good friend of mine and it was the right decision this morning.

'There has been a lot of speculation over the past few weeks about where I was going. But I gave every club a chance and spoke to every manager.

'Madrid explained to me they were looking to wait and another week or so which is fair enough. Having spoken to the Celtic manager and having been offered the contract, I knew this was the club for me. I took my time and made the right decision. I feel this is where I belong.

'They are getting a pretty decent player. A lot has been said about my injuries and age but I have a lot to offer and I will surprise a few people.

I have been a midfielder professionally for the last 15 or 16 years. If you are challenging for trophies then you always need a big squad. The players at Celtic have done very well so I am under no illusions that I will walk into the team.

'I have never taken my place in the team for granted. I aim to train hard and give the manager a problem. At my previous club when they bought a few midfielders I saw it as a challenge so hopeful those here will do the same.'
