Robbie Keane has revealed he would give his medal away if Liverpool were to win the Premier League.

Striker Keane brought to an end a disappointingly brief spell at Anfield when he signed for former club Tottenham Hotspur this week having scored seven goals in 28 appearances for the club he supported as a child.

With Liverpool second in the league they have their best chance in years of claiming the title, but Keane would take little pleasure from being given a medal.

"It would mean nothing at all to me now," he said. "My brother is a Liverpool fan so I'd probably give it to him.

"The way I look at it is that a medal means something when you are a part of the squad and involved in winning a trophy.

"When you are in and out of the squad and not involved in games, there are times when you don't feel part of it.

"Next month's Carling Cup final means more to me because I'm a Tottenham player now, even though I can't play.

"Liverpool is gone. It's the past. What happens there now is not my problem."
