Gary Gardner hopes he can flourish as a top-flight midfielder with the help of new assistant manager Roy Keane.

The appointment of Keane as Paul Lambert's new No.2 was confirmed yesterday.

And news of the Man Utd legend's arrival was greeted positively by Gardner.

The 22-year-old believes he can learn plenty from Keane, who is considered one of the greatest players of the Premier League era.

"Roy is someone who really doesn't need an introduction because he has proved what he is all about," said Gardner.

"He was a hard tackling midfielder, a very vocal player and a great person to have on your side.

"As a central midfielder myself, it is amazing to have someone like him here and hopefully he can help as much as possible.

"To have someone like that to listen to and to take on board their advice is a dream.

"In that famous Man Utd team he was a key player and a skipper. All of his games against Patrick Vieira were fun to watch.

"That's what football is all about. As a kid that's what made me love football."
