MULLINGAR NATIVE AIDAN Keena is currently on loan at Queens Park from Hearts.

The 18-year-old, formerly of St Patrick’s Athletic, was in action against Alloa Athletic in the Scottish League One on Saturday and opened the scoring with a peach of a goal.

After picking up possession just inside the opposing half, Ireland U19 striker Keena cut inside before unleashing a perfectly-measured strike over the Alloa goalkeeper from all of 40 yards.

He was named man of the match, but couldn’t prevent Queens Park going down 2-1 on the day.

‘I felt how most young boys would, thinking ‘F**k this, I’m not playing football’ as I thought I’d been shafted’

‘Contrary to how it has been reported, I did not attack the FAI’
