Keith Andrews

Where is Keith Andrews now?

Former Blackburn Rovers and Ireland midfielder Keith Andrews retired from playing in 2014 after a brief second spell at former club Milton Keynes Dons.

Andrews enjoyed a long and successful playing career that saw him become Wolverhampton Wanderers’ youngest ever captain at the age of 21 and play in the Premier League with Blackburn Rovers.

He was also an important part of the Republic of Ireland national side between 2008 and 2012 winning 35 caps and featuring in the 2012 UEFA European Championships.

Upon hanging up his boots, Andrews stayed on at MK Dons as a first-team coach working alongside manager Karl Robinson for their first season in the Championship.

However, he left after one season to continue his development and education elsewhere although he was quick to say that it was the best place for him to make the transition from player to coach.

In January 2017 he made a return to football when he was appointed as a youth coach at Irish side St Patrick’s Athletic whilst working towards completing his UEFA coaching badges.

Prior to his job at St Patrick’s Athletic, Andrews spent time with the Irish national side’s under 15’s team working as a mentor.

Following his work with the younger boys he was appointed as a technical advisor to the successful Ireland under 17’s side which reached the quarter-finals of the 2017 European Championships.

He then had a spell coaching the Irish under 18’s side before joining the coaching staff of the Republic of Ireland under 21’s in January 2019.

Away from his coaching duties Andrews works within the media as a football pundit and analyst on Sky Sports mainly focusing on the Championship.
