Keith struggled to break in to the Queens Park Rangers first team in 2000-01 and was restricted to a handful of early season outings as cover for the non-availability of other players.

In January, he moved on loan to Second Division Luton Town where he settled in straight away featuring regularly during his stay.

He is a left-sided player who operates either as a wing back or in a more attacking midfield role.

He returned to Loftus Road and was released in the summer.

After moving on to Chesterfield, his contract with the Spireites was cancelled in December 2002.

Keith subsequently joined Barnet on a non-contract basis.
