Ex-Celtic star Robbie Keane has recalled the moment he was criticised by Rafa Benitez despite scoring twice and bagging man of the match in a Liverpool win over Bolton.

The Irishman netted a brace against Wanderers at Anfield in 2008.

Perfectionist Benitez pulled Keane for a chat in training the following Monday and critiqued his attacking link-up play.

But the fiery striker wasn't happy after he'd helped win his side the match - only to still be pulled up.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Keane said: "I'd scored two goals and was man of the match, I was on a high.

"On the Monday [Rafa] pulls me in about my movement. Now my game was always about movement.

"The analyst guy was trying to show me on the video, and he's never played, so I wasn't happy."

Keane added: "That's fine. You learn from that. 

"By the way, I have nothing against Rafa, I thought he was a brilliant coach and it's great that I've picked up something from every one of my managers."
