Keane laughs off Fergie jibe

Robbie Keane admits he's not unduly concerned about Sir Alex Ferguson's comments about his move to Anfield.

Reds striker accepts game is all about opinions

Robbie Keane has laughed off Sir Alex Ferguson's suggestion that his move from Tottenham to Liverpool was the surprise transfer of the summer. The Manchester United boss has admitted raising an eyebrow upon learning Keane had sealed a move to Merseyside. The striker arrived at Liverpool burdened with a hefty price tag and in the knowledge Reds boss Rafa Benitez had tinkered with his formation to accommodate a much-feted partnership with Fernando Torres. Keane, who captains Republic of Ireland in Montenegro on Wednesday, insists Ferguson's assessment of his move is water off a duck's back, as he believes the game is all about opinions. "I'm very surprised John O'Shea doesn't play for United every week," said Keane. "Football is about opinions and I respect everybody's opinion." Keane will have a chance to prove to Ferguson he is well worth the £20.3million Liverpool shelled out for his services when his new side play United at Anfield on Saturday, in a game that can be seen live on Sky Sports 1.
