It remains to be seen whether Keane's legal team will take the matter further. 

A midlands senator is apologising for comments about Robbie Keane's salary. 

Fine Gael's Michael Carrigy says information contained in a press release on the issue was inaccurate and false in a number of respects. 

Solicitors for the Republic of Ireland's record goal-scorer took issue with information about his role within the FAI and his €250,000 euro wage.

It remains to be seen whether Keane's legal team will take the matter further. 

The Longford senator's statement read;

“On Thursday (24th March), I issued a press release about Robbie Keane.

“I’ve since learned that the information contained in this release was inaccurate and false in a number of respects and was unfair.

“As a result, I have withdrawn the press release and apologise to Robbie for any damage caused.”
