ROBBIE Keane is determined to make a triumphant return to Celtic Park and keep Ireland's Euro 2016 dream on course.

The Ireland captain is heading back to the USA for club duties with LA Galaxy after he played a part in the four-point haul from the last two Euro qualifiers.

But former Celtic player Keane (pictured) is already thinking about that November 14th date away to Scotland.

"It will be nice to go back, I haven't been back there since I was a player. Celtic Park for any Irish person is great and I am certainly looking forward to it.

"There is a strong belief in the dressing room that we can go anywhere and get something.

"We have to believe that, whatever minute of the game it is, we can get something of of a game regardless of who we play, if it's Germany or whoever,we have that belief in the dressing room and it's there for everyone to see.

"Poland drawing with Scotland on Tuesday is a good result for us. Certainly before the games, that's a result you would have been happy with," added Keane.
