Former Manchester United midfielder Roy Keane believes Louis van Gaal has all the credentials to be a major success at Old Trafford following his decision to sign a three-year deal at the club.

Keane had previously blasted Manchester United’s top brass for dismissing former manager David Moyes during his first year at the club.

However the Irishman has now backed Moyes’ replacement Van Gaal to restore order at Manchester United following a horrendous season for the north-west giants.

Keane, who has been linked with taking up the reins at Celtic Park following Neil Lennon’s departure from the Scottish Premier League champions, had nothing but high praise for the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager.

"He is obviously a top manager, lots of experience," said Keane. "His contract was up with the national team, so that fell into place nicely.

"Fingers crossed, he'll be a manager. It's been a tough season for United - fingers crossed he'll do the business.

"I'm pretty sure he will."

Van Gaal, who has reportedly been handed a £150million war chest to try and rebuild Manchester United's faltering squad, is currently preparing the Netherlands national team for the upcoming World Cup in Brazil.

The 62-year-old has handed Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward a comprehensive list of the targets he wants at Old Trafford ahead of next season’s Premier League campaign.
