The Tottenham Hotspur striker Robbie Keane has been fined £10,000 by the club for an incident during last Saturday's Premiership game at Birmingham City.

Keane, one of the substitutes, was punished for showing dissent towards the Spurs management when it became clear he was not going to be used during the 1-1 draw.

Keane, the former Internazionale forward, signed from Leeds United because he was not getting first-team football at Elland Road for £7m in August 2002 and made a big impact at White Hart Lane, where he has scored 44 goals in 111 appearances.

However, the Republic of Ireland international has faced increased competition following the arrival of Jermain Defoe and the Egyptian striker Mido.

Keane appeared to take the fine with good grace, saying: "Hopefully, I will be playing and scoring goals and we will see how far we get. You have just got to get on with it. You cannot moan about it."
