Man United legend Roy Keane looking for a return to management

Former Manchester United captain Roy Keane has been tipped to return to management soon.

Keane is being linked with the Celtic job having featured for them as a player with the club set to part ways with Neil Lennon.

It is reported that Keane was offered the Celtic job in 2014 with Ronny Deila as his No.2 and remains one of the favorites to take the job if the Scottish giants decide to look for a new manager.

According to the Sun’s Alan Nixon, Keane wants to be back in management after a long time out, and apart from Celtic, he is warming up to the idea of managing any team in the UK.

“The fiery Irishman has told pals he is itching to be a boss again and get the day-to-day involvement at a club that he is missing.

“Keane has been visiting his old pals at Manchester United when he can, checking in to their training HQ on the quiet. There may be a route back into the game for him at his old club despite some of his savage remarks about players. But news that Keane would return to the dugout is bound to spark interest in many places,” Nixon wrote.

Keane, who played for the Bhoys’ in the second half of the 2005-06 season, managed 13 games under the Gordon Strachan before announcing his retirement the subsequent summer.

Keane's managerial career has seen him manage Sunderland and Ipswich with the Irishman acting as an assistant coach at Aston Villa, Ireland, and Nottingham Forest.
