Celtic: Souness addresses Keane links

Celtic: Souness addresses Keane links - Celtic

Graeme Souness has spoken out on reports linking fellow Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane with the Celtic job.

The Sun revealed earlier this month that the former Hoops midfielder is keen to return to the dugout and would be interested in the vacant Celtic role, should they come calling.

Keane’s Celtic snub

Keane, who was offered the job back in 2014, was last in charge of a club back in 2011 with Ipswich Town. Since then, the Irishman has been an assistant with Ireland, Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest.

Talking in his column for The Times, cited by the Glasgow Evening Times, Souness name-checked his Sky colleague Keane for the Celtic job, claiming it would ‘be great for the Scottish game’.

“Don’t expect Celtic to roll over and accept this as the norm. They will respond this summer.

“I can’t second guess their board, but if they went for Roy Keane, as a report suggested, it would light the touch paper and be great for the Scottish game because people throughout football and far beyond Scotland would be talking about the rivalry with those two personalities in charge.”

Transfer Tavern take

If the club approach Keane and he indeed makes the move back to Glasgow, it could spark a fierce rivalry with Rangers boss Steven Gerrard.

The pair came up against each other during their respective playing careers with Manchester United and Liverpool, and Keane refused to congratulate Gerrard and Rangers following their Scottish Premiership title win.

In terms of experience, it could be a risk to hand Keane the job, however, we’re sure he’d provide plenty of entertainment in the Parkhead dugout.
