ROY KEANE wants the Celtic manager’s job — and a sensational return to Scottish football.

The Manchester United and Republic of Ireland legend is up for the task of taking on Steven Gerrard’s Rangers if the call comes.

Keane is keen on going back to the dugout, as we revealed.

The Parkhead post is right up his street because of his strong allegiance to the club.

The former Bhoys midfielder, 49, was offered the job before and declined, but he would say yes this time — and that might fit with Celtic’s requirements.

Senior Celtic chiefs want to keep the existing coaching staff and put a ‘figurehead’ in charge. Keane does not have a backroom team that he uses, so that would be ideal.

There would be a good salary on offer too for Keane, who is a well-paid pundit on Sky.

Those wages are also tempting other candidates like Eddie Howe, David Moyes and Scotland boss Steve Clarke.

However, Keane may have the most box-office appeal and if he is asked then he has told pals he would jump at it.

Keane has a major ally in Martin O’Neill, having worked with the former Republic of Ireland boss who has the ear of some of the Celtic hierarchy.

And despite a mixed managerial record, Keane’s judgment and personality would be a major plus for Celtic after a horror campaign in the league.
