'Keane Had Chat With Celtic'

Roy Keane has held talks with Celtic over their vacant manager's job, according to Republic of Ireland manager Martin O'Neill.

O'Neill confirmed on Thursday evening that his 42-year-old assistant has held informal talks with the Hoops, for whom he played briefly at the end of his career, after owner and majority shareholder Dermot Desmond had made contact.

O'Neill said: "I had a call the other day from Dermot Desmond wanting to speak to Roy if it was at all possible, and I mentioned it to Roy, of course.

"I am sure he was wanting to have chat anyway because a club like Celtic might not come around too often.

"It was just a really informal chat, I think, but if you are asking me would I be really disappointed? Of course if Roy was to leave us.''
