Keane Deal Bigger Than Souness
Ex-Spurs defender Graham Roberts reckons Roy Keane's arrival at Celtic tops even Rangers' signing of Graeme Souness twenty years ago.
Souness turned Scottish football upside down when he came to Ibrox from Sampdoria in the spring of 1986. And Keane could do the same to Clyde's Tennent's Scottish Cup hopes on Sunday when he is expected to make his eagerly-awaited Hoops debut at Broadwood.
Former Rangers player Roberts was among a clutch of high-profile signings -including Chris Woods, Terry Butcher and Mo Johnston - to follow in his Souness' steps at Rangers.
However, the BullyWee boss says Celtic's capture of Keane on a free transfer from Manchester United is the most significant the Scottish game has ever seen. Roberts said: 'Roy is a world-class operator who has come to Celtic because they are his boyhood heroes and he wants to finish his career there.
'He is the best thing to ever happen to Scottish football. He has given the Scottish game the biggest lift it has ever had.'
