Robbie Keane pictured training with Al Ahli

Former Tottenham Hotspur idol Robbie Keane was pictured taking part in a training session with UAE club Al Ahli.

The 36-year-old striker has been looking for a new club since ending a five-year stint with MLS’ LA Galaxy in November.

The images first appeared on the Twitter account of the Dubai-based club, leading to a speculation that Keane is set to continue his journey in the Middle East.

However, according to the Irish Times, the former Republic of Ireland captain is not expected to join Al Ahli as he arrived in UAE only for holiday.

Al Ahli currently sit fourth in the Arabian Gulf League table under Cosmin Olariu’s guidance this season.
