Reports linking Roy Keane with the vacant Celtic managerial role seem to be gathering pace.
On Thursday morning, Football Insider revealed that the Hoops had ‘sensationally‘ opened talks with the Irishman and were ready to offer Keane a return to management 10 years on from his last position.
Fresh Keane update
The Daily Mail, cited by the Daily Record, have now had their say on the former Celtic midfielder.
They also claim that the 49-year-old has held discussions with the Hoops hierarchy, with Keane seemingly interested in becoming Neil Lennon’s long-term successor.
However, the latest report added that Keane is just one of a “number of candidates” in the frame to take over in Glasgow, meaning there could be more twists and turns to come yet.

Transfer Tavern take
With more than one outlet now sharing details of Keane’s reported Celtic discussions, it seems as if the Sky Sports pundit could well be making the move back to Scotland.
If he does, we feel it would be a risk, purely based on his lengthy absence from the dugout.
Yes, it would be sensational – causing huge public interest to shift towards Glasgow – but a 10-year gap from being the main man on the touchline could be a cause for concern.
Perhaps some fans will be hoping that one of those other candidates steals the show.
