Martin O’Neill expects to hear in the next 48 hours from Roy Keane regarding the vacant mangers job a Celtic, according to the Daily Record.

Keane finished his playing career with the Scottish champions so is familiar with the pressure and expectations that would come with managing the club. Although only holding informal conversations with the clubs majority shareholder Dermot Desmond, he has emerged as the overwhelming favourite for the role.

Celtic have a large Irish fan base which could be an attraction for the current Republic of Ireland assistant manager. The former Manchester United captain has previously stated his desire to return to full time management following unsuccessful tenures with Sunderland and Ipswich Town.

Despite being tempted to a return to management by Turkish club Kasimpassa in 2012, Keane declined the offer hoping to be Steve Keane’s successor at Blackburn. It was however former Celtic manager O’Neill who lured Keane back into management as assistant of Ireland.

This could be seen by many as a chance for Keane to redeem himself after Mick McCarthy sent him home from the 2002 World Cup.  A chance to manage Celtic could be hard to refuse with the lure of Champions League football to demonstrate his managerial credentials.
