Despite dismissing the speculation last week, insisting that he had ‘2 jobs’, it’s been confirmed that Roy Keane has now entered talks with Celtic to take over as manager of the Scottish champions, a vacant position since Neil Lennon left last week.
Ireland manager Martin O’Neill has admitted that his number 2 has ‘had a chat’ with the Old Firm club, with other sources even reporting that Celtic have offered the Corkman the job.
With O’Neill having brought Steve Guppy on board this week, the warning signs were already there for Ireland fans that Keane may be on his way, with the feeling being that Keane’s been unchallenged in his Ireland role, spending most of his time watching matches and not having the input he was expecting.
Odds have been slashed by many bookies, with Sky Bet closing the market altogether…

Good to see that after having a volatile, reactionary manager, Celtic are going for the calm, composed and conciliatory type in Roy Keane
