Gerrard denies that Keane will leave Liverpool
Steven Gerrard has denied reports claiming he said that Robbie Keane was set to leave Liverpool in the January transfer window.
BBC pundit and former Reds legend Mark Lawrenson told Irish radio station Today FM that he had spoken informally to Gerrard and that the England midfielder let it slip that Keane was to be shipped out.
The Irish striker has been unable to establish himself at the Premier League leaders since his £20.3m move from Spurs in the summer scoring just three goals. Despite all of the signs pointing towards an Anfield exit, a spokesman for Liverpool issued a statement today refuting mounting speculation that Keane would be given the heave-ho in the New Year.
