ON LUKA MODRIC AND ROBBIE KEANE BRINGING OUT THE BEST IN EACH OTHER: "I think they will enjoy playing together. They are both fantastic footballers, great competitors and you can see them straight on the same wavelength in training.

"People look at Luka and think he is a marvellous little footballer, but you saw him in central midfield in the Stoke game - against a strong physical team - and he ran the show. Top players like Robbie and Luka will feed off each other

"I played Luka on the left against Arsenal to balance up the team - he can do that job.

"We worked hard in training getting him coming off the line, picking balls up in the little holes between the back four and their midfield and he did that well."

ON getting THE cheque book OUT again AT the end of the season to see the club climb into the top four: "If we survive I see this club being great again, certainly top four.

"I might go back into the transfer market again in the summer. I haven't finished yet.

"I see this as my last club, one I can leave where they once were.
