Watch Robbie Keane overcelebrate a back garden kickabout goal against his unimpressed son

As someone who has played in a variety of leagues of differing quality, Robbie Keane knows a top striker has to give his all whatever the circumstances.

Keane has scored goals wherever he has been given the chance, be it the Championship, Premier League, Champions League, Scottish Premiership or Major League Soccer (Yes, we're choosing to ignore his brief and goalless Serie A spell).

Or, as it turns out, his back garden.

The Ireland international, who played his last game for his country in 2016, has been known throughout his career for his overexuberant celebrations.

He might no longer have the cartwheel and forward roll combo in his arsenal, but Keane won't avoid overcelebrating a goal - even if the keeper is his young son.

We're not sure what's better about this clip, the top-corner finish or the Alan Shearer-style raised-arm.

Just kidding, it's neither of these things. The highlight is the look of utter dissatisfaction and bemusement on the face of Keane junior after the ball hits the back of the net.

Keane has been without a club since leaving Los Angeles at the end of the last MLS season, having scored more than 100 goals for the club in all competitions.

If this is his way of auditioning for a new employer, he has certainly shown that his passion for the game is still there.
