Roy Keane to open Celtic talks

Republic of Ireland assistant manager Roy Keane has begun talks with Celtic regarding the vacant managerial job at Celtic Park. Neil Lennon stepped down last week as head coach.

Ireland's manager Martin O'Neill has revealed that representatives of the Scottish side have been in contact with him regarding Keane's availability.

"I had a call the other day from Dermot Desmond wanting to speak to Roy if it was at all possible, and I mentioned it to Roy, of course," said O'Neill.

"I am sure he was wanting to have chat anyway because a club like Celtic might not come around too often.

"It was just a really informal chat, I think, but if you are asking me would I be really disappointed? Of course if Roy was to leave us."
