The Mirror says Former Celtic and Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill and Manchester United legend Roy Keane are booked to be on ITV's expert panel for their coverage of United's Champions League match against Real Sociedad.

They are certain to be grilled on their potential managerial tie-up with the Republic of Ireland, which will make it essential viewing.

O'Neill is set to succeed the sacked Giovanni Trapattoni as Ireland boss and wants fellow former Sunderland manager Keane as his No.2.

Ex-Manchester United captain Keane, 42, saw sent home from Ireland's World Cup campaign on the eve of the tournament in 2002, but is set to return despite his stinging attack on the FAI back then.
