Celtic legend John Hartson has spoken about the idea of Roy Keane managing at Parkhead in the future.
Hartson appeared on the latest episode of the Go Radio Football Show and Celtic was among the main topics of discussion. Hartson discussed the identity of the next Celtic manager and this led to him talking about Keane potentially managing the Hoops.
The former striker said that Keane would walk over broken glass to manage Celtic and it’d be quite enjoyable to see him ruffle some feathers at Parkhead.
Do you think Keane suits Celtic as a manager?
It was reported some months ago that Keane would be willing to manage Celtic and that the Irishman had actually held talks for the role before Ronny Deila joined.
Hartson gave his views about the possibility and claimed: “I wouldn’t be totally against Roy Keane getting the post. I think he’d ruffle a few feathers along the way. I think it’d be quite enjoyable. But listen, if it’s put to him, he’d walk on broken glass to manage Celtic.”
TIF Thoughts on Keane at Celtic…
49-year-old Keane last managed a club way back in 2011, when he left Ipswich Town. Since then, he’s had short stints as assistant manager at Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest under the likes of Paul Lambert and Martin O’Neill (as per Transfermarkt).
During his managerial stints, the Irishman fell out with many of his players, which doesn’t reflect well on his managerial ability.
Keeping that in mind, perhaps Celtic shouldn’t look at appointing Keane and stick to their reported talks with Ange Postecoglou.
