ROBBIE Keane says he's not hung up on overtaking Gerd Muller in the all-time scoring charts.

Having scored two against Gibaltar on Friday, if Keane does hit the net at home to Georgia he will equal Muller's record of 68 international goals but Keane, who admits that he may not even get to start the game, is not targeting Muller - for now.

"I wasn't aware of that before the game, it was mentioned to me after the game," Keane said of the Muller record.

"To be up there with those names is incredible. I don't think about it too much, it is one of those when I hang up the boots and look back I will give myself a pat on the back but at this moment in time I am just looking for the next goal," added the Ireland captain ahead of the Georgia tie.
