Dublin born Michael Keane has hit back at critics who said he was taking longer than expected to get back from injury as he didn’t want to play in a struggling side.
Keane told the Advertiser, ‘That couldn’t be further from the truth.
Im so honest that i tried to rush back too soon.
I was doing extra work on the training ground until 3pm every day and ended up breaking down again.’
He commented, ‘I had a scan and it showed the full seriousness of the problem.
The tendon involved was so long it nearly went up to my backside.
If anyone doubts that, they are welcome to come and look at the scans.’
The hardworking midfielder concluded by saying, ‘I was and still am, desperate to play and even now i haven’t given up on helping us stop up.
Until it’s mathematically impossible, there’s a chance.
I wont give up, that’s the type of person i am, i want to win every game.
But whatever happens, i want to stay here with Rotherham’.
