Robbie Keane used as a second half substitute in the Republic of Ireland's 1-1 draw with Scotland | INSIDER

Robbie Keane went 17 minutes in the Republic of Ireland's 1-1 draw with Scotland in their 2016 Euro qualifier in Dublin on Saturday. 

Ireland took the lead off a goal by Jon Walters despite the forward being offside according to television replays. The lead did not last as the Scots pulled level in the 47th minute when John O'Shea deflected a shot by Shaun Mahoney into the back of the Irish net. Keane was brought in around the 73rd minute to help the Irish pull ahead but the go-ahead goal never came. 

With the result, the Irish are fourth in Group D with nine points after six games. The Republic of Ireland will resume qualifying in September with matches against Gibraltar on Sept. 4 in Portugal and Georgia on Sept. 7 in Dublin.
