Celtic striker's car impounded

Celtic striker Robbie Keane has had his car impounded by police near Glasgow despite being out of the country.

The Ireland international's customised Range Rover was stopped at 1.15am on Tuesday morning for having a missing tax disc. It was being driven by a garage worker after the footballer had booked it in for work.

Keane, who is on loan to Celtic from Premiership club Tottenham, was reportedly on a short break abroad when the incident happened.

The car, said to be worth in the region of £80,000, was stopped on North Road in Bellshill, North Lanarkshire, and taken to a local car pound.

A 46-year-old man has been reported to the Procurator Fiscal in relation to the incident.

A Strathclyde Police spokesman said: "Following a routine stop of a motor vehicle at 1.15am on Tuesday April 6, 2010, in North Road, Bellshill, a male aged 46 years is subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal for an alleged Road Traffic Offence.

"The vehicle was removed to an authorised police removal yard in Bellshill."
