Shay Given believes the arrival of loan signing Robbie Keane has given all the other Aston Villa players "a kick up the backside" ahead of Saturday's clash at his former club Wolves.

Goalkeeper Given feels it is important for his Republic of Ireland team-mate Keane to gain his sharpness ahead of the Euro 2012 finals and he appeared as a substitute against Everton last weekend.

He said: "I am delighted Robbie is here at Villa. He is a big personality and a big game player. He has showed in training how big a player he is as well and got his first taste of action last weekend. He has given the changing room a big lift and given the manager (Alex McLeish) a headache now to get him in the team."
