The Reds regained the top spot on the Premier League table following their win on Saturday.
“It was very important to get the win,” Keane said. “It’s not nice playing later in the day and watching the other results come in, but there were some good results for us and so it was important we did our bit.
“It was a good performance by the lads and we could have scored a few more. It was important we bounced back after Tottenham last week and we did that. There is a lot of resilience in this side.
“Of course it’s nice to get the goals. It’s been a while but I knew it was just a matter of time. I wasn’t getting down about things, which is something I might have done had a been a bit younger or more naive.
“Hopefully today you have seen Robbie Keane back to his best. It’s been stop start for me so far but I feel I’ve been getting better and better each game and hopefully that can continue.”
