Robbie Keane insists the respect and gratitude he feels towards former club Wolves meant he was never going to celebrate after his two-goal blast earned Aston Villa victory at Molineux.

Keane's second-half doubled enabled Villa to triumph 3-2 as the on-loan Los Angeles Galaxy striker marked his full debut with two superb strikes in a thrilling Barclays Premier League encounter.

But even the boos directed towards him by some Wolves fans did not tempt Keane to show any disrespect towards the club where he started his career, and he said: "I had wonderful times at Wolves and they are a club that looked after me as a kid."
