Richard Keogh has joined MK Dons


Republic of Ireland defender Richard Keogh has returned to football for the first time since his sacking by Derby.

He's signed for League One side Milton Keynes Dons.

The defender had his contract terminated after picking up a serious knee injury in a car crash which resulted in former team-mates Tom Lawrence and Mason Bennett being convicted of drink-driving.

“I’m delighted to be here,” Keogh told MK Don's official website. “Once I spoke to Russ and saw the vision and playing style he has – it just felt like the right fit for me.

“I can’t be more excited, it’s a fantastic set up here and I really believe in what Russ is trying to build here – I think it’s going to be a perfect fit for me. When I saw he got the MK Dons job I was always keeping an eye out for how he was doing, to do what he did in the short space of time, to change the philosophy and the culture in that period was fantastic."

“We want to play an exciting brand of football and when you do that – people buy-in and feel excited about it.

"I can’t wait to get on the shirt and I’m looking forward now, I’ve missed a lot of football and you’re getting someone who is going to be excited, hungry to play and push this team forward.
