Keane admitted his pursuit of Gordon is at an end after his latest bid was rejected, and he said: "It´s been well-documented we made a bid for the lad in Scotland that was turned down. That´s the end of it. I have got two very good goalkeepers, Marton Fulop and Darren Ward, so that´s it, as far as I´m concerned."
Baines, the England Under-21 international called Keane earlier this week to politely decline his offer of employment, and the Irishman said: "It´s disappointing, of course, but you can´t win them all. I spoke to Leighton last week and then he rang me the other night."
