Roy Keane plays down Celtic speculation

Former midfielder Roy Keane rejects speculation linking him with the vacant managerial role at Celtic.

Roy Keane has attempted to play down speculation linking him with the vacant managerial role at Celtic.

Neil Lennon stepped down as Celtic boss on Thursday, which resulted in a host of names being linked with a move to the Scottish Premiership champions.

However, Keane, who is currently the assistant manager with the Republic of Ireland and a pundit for ITV, has insisted that he wouldn't be able to take on a third job.

The 42-year-old told Sky Sports News: "I've got a job. I've got two jobs - I can't have another one.

"They are a brilliant club, an absolutely fantastic football club, one of the best in the world. But I have got a job."

Keane played 13 games for Celtic at the end of his playing career.
