Ipswich boss Keane cools Celtic return talk

Ipswich Town boss Roy Keane has cooled talk of taking the manager's job at Celtic.

The former Manchester United star has distanced himself from the speculation.

He said: "Be very surprised if you see me walking through the gates at Celtic Park - except if it's for the Old Firm game on Tuesday week because I might come up for that one."

Keane believes Neil Lennon is doing a fine job as interim boss at Celtic Park, even though the Hoops were recently knocked out of the Active Nation Scottish Cup semi-final by Irn-Bru First Division side Ross County.

He said: "Celtic are a bigger club than anyone will ever understand unless they have been involved there.

"I was there for six months and I had my problems with a few injuries, plus the manager didn't really pick me. The sheer size of the club is staggering. Neil has made that point and I couldn't agree more. Hopefully they will get the right manager and I have to say Lenny is doing well.

"He's won four league games but I know they lost in the Scottish Cup. They're having disappointments but that's when you find out who the real supporters are."
