The Celtic fans who are competing in a pool tournament in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing comments with regards to the club’s potential new manager made by one of their current stars.
The Scotsman is reporting that current Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has urged the club to appoint the current Republic of Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane as the club’s new manager.
Gordon is no stranger to Keane he was the manager who paid £9 million to take him from Hearts to Sunderland.
Speaking about Keane, Gordon said:
“I’ve worked with Roy in the past and I’m sure that, if he was offered the challenge of leading the club, he would accept it.”
“Off the park, he likes things to be organised and he demands that from every- one on the staff; he expects certain standards to be maintained and, if they aren’t, he’ll certainly let you know about it. But, if you’re giving 100 per cent and doing all you can, then he’s going to be all right with you. He’s a good manager in that sense.”
Other names in the frame for taking over as manager of the club are both David Moyes and Brendan Rodgers and it will be interesting to see what type of manager the club will eventually appoint.
The Celtic fans in The Tavern would be delighted to have Keane appointed as the club’s new manager and feel that he will give the players that added edge when it comes for playing for their club.
Should Keane join Celtic? Let us know in the comments below!
