'He plays for Spurs, he should be used to disappointment’ – Keane tells Kane to ‘liven up’ after Man City transfer woe

ROY KEANE has urged Harry Kane to get over his failed move to Manchester City and claimed: "He plays for Spurs, he should be used to disappointment."

The England captain, 28, handed in a transfer request in May as he desperately chased the silverware that's thus far eluded him at Tottenham.

Kane was expected to join City in a £150million deal, but Pep Guardiola instead splurged £100m on his Three Lions pal Jack Grealish.

The Spurs striker has looked a shadow of his former self for much of the season – scoring just one Premier League goal in nine games.

Speaking on ITV Sport ahead of England's World Cup qualifier against Albania, Ian Wright claimed he hoped Kane would burst back into life following Spurs' change of manager – with Antonio Conte replacing Nuno Espirito Santo.

And Keane left the former Arsenal star in stitches with a withering put-down of Tottenham.

The former Manchester United hardman said: "He's got to liven up. He's got to liven up.

"He's got to look at himself and say, 'get over these disappointments'.


"Listen, he plays for Spurs he should be used to disappointment."

Kane looked lively early on in the clash at Wembley – scoring TWICE in the opening half an hour before completing a perfect hat-trick on the stroke of half-time.

Harry Maguire – another player desperate to recapture his top form – thumped home a header from Reece James' delivery to give England a ninth-minute lead.

And Kane's first goal less than ten minutes later saw him equal Wayne Rooney's competitive tally for the Three Lions.

Rooney – England's all-time leading scorer – netted 37 times in non-friendlies.

Kane nodded home England's second goal from an inch-perfect Jordan Henderson cross to draw level.

And he wasted no time in breaking the record as he smashed home his nation's fourth shortly after the 30-minute mark with a swing of his left foot.

He then scored a brilliant scissor kick volley, with the help of a slight deflection, to make it 5-0 going into the break.

The Spurs star is now only nine goals behind Roo's overall record (53) with 44 – and level with Jimmy Greaves.

Gary Lineker on 48 and Sir Bobby Charlton, with 49, are also ahead of him.

Kane's first goal also saw him become the first England star in over 100 years to score ten goals for his country in a calendar year.
