Man Utd great Keane fears he's missed out on Celtic job

Manchester United great Roy Keane fears he's missed out on the Celtic manager's job.

Keane hoped to get a shot at his dream appointment and was backed by ex-Hoops boss Martin O'Neill.

But Keane's chances are now fading fast after Eddie Howe's interview and the delay in hearing from Celtic, reports The Sun.

The Irishman, 49, who managed Sunderland and Ipswich, split opinions in the club's hierarchy, with some liking his passion while others wanted a more modern coach.

And although he is desperate for the job, Keane has told mates he feels the chance has gone.

Former Bournemouth manager Howe remains in pole position to take over at Celtic Park.
