Robbie Keane is expecting to be back at Tottenham Hotspur next season after marking his final appearance on loan at Celtic with a goal.
The Irish striker took his tally to 16 goals in 19 appearances since joining Celtic on loan before the close of the January transfer window by netting at Hearts on Sunday.
Caretaker manager Neil Lennon has previously expressed a wish to keep the 29-year-old at Parkhead next season on a permanent basis following his impact for the SPL giants.
However, Spurs boss Harry Redknapp recently insisted Keane has a future at White Hart Lane after the club secured qualification for the UEFA Champions League.
Keane was happy to end his stint at Celtic by scoring in the 2-1 win at Hearts and he is now preparing to return to his parent club over the summer.
Judged on goals
He said: "I'm a Tottenham player aren't I? I've got a contract with Tottenham so I will be back there unless someone tells me different.
"I don't want to be disrespectful to Tottenham, I've got a contract there so as far as I'm concerned I will be back there.
"I'm delighted with my goal, obviously, that's why I'm here, to score goals.
"I'm judged on scoring goals and I'm happy with my performance."
