Official News: Derby County on the great side when Huddersfield Town announce their modern-day legend as…

It was a testing campaign for the Terriers, as they struggled near the bottom of the league for the majority of the time.

So, given their struggles when the January transfer window arrived in 2021, Corberan decided he needed to bring in some experience, and the club secured the signing of central defender Richard Keogh.

Keogh had been playing for MK Dons and was performing reasonably well, so the Terriers were hoping his arrival could help them in the Championship. Joining the club in 2021 wasn’t Keogh’s first time with the Terriers, as he spent three months with Huddersfield in 2007 while on loan from Bristol City.

While the club did beat the drop, finishing 20th in the league, Keogh’s time at Huddersfield wasn’t as good as the player’s time with Derby County, where he had the very best years of his career.

Richard Keogh’s time at Derby County

Keogh started his football career at Ipswich Town, but left the club in 2003 to join Stoke City.

From then on, the defender was very much on the move in his playing career, as he soon joined Bristol City, where he was shipped out on loan a few times. Keogh never really got going at Bristol City, and his time at the club ended in 2008 when he joined Carlisle United. After two years with the Cumbrians, he then joined Coventry City, and a couple more years down the line, he made his move to Derby.

The defender would go on to play for the club for seven seasons, all of which were played in the Championship.

While the club didn’t achieve promotion, Keogh played a big role in the Rams reaching the play-offs on four separate occasions.

Apart from the 2019/20 season, Keogh was a firm regular in the Derby team, and he finished his time with the club having played 356 games, scoring 12 goals and chipping in with 14 assists from centre-back
