Roy Keane held talks with the Celtic board over becoming the club’s new manager but he now fears he has been overlooked.
That’s according to a report from The Scottish Sun, who claimed that the former Hoops midfielder’s chances of returning to Parkhead are fading following Eddie Howe’s interview.
Howe also held talks with Celtic and even reached a verbal agreement with the club, but he has now had second thoughts and has since spoken to Crystal Palace about potentially succeeding Roy Hodgson at Selhurst Park.
Would you take Keane at Celtic?
Transfer Tavern take
Some of the Celtic board liked his passion, but with a lengthy period out of the game as the main man, we feel it could prove to be a huge risk. The Irishman also comes with a reputation for high-profile fallouts with players due to his blunt demenaour.
Someone like Howe, who has more than 500 games as manager under his belt, has worked in a number of leagues under various restrictions and could be the better call for Celtic to make. However, with the 43-year-old having second thoughts over a Parkhead move, the Hoops may have to look elsewhere.
