    He's been out of management for 10 years and wasn't a success in the two jobs he's had. I can say comfortably, it will end in tears.

    Will be in the exact same situation in December as we where last year. They can shove their season ticket up their hole

    The only hope I have if Keane gets the job is, that the fans will get so * of by Desmond's choice that we will get rid of him in 1-2 years. Another Lennon disaster and the pitchforks. We all know Lennon just got the job because Desmond rates him. If he brings in another failure against all advise from fans with actual football knowledge, he'll have a hard time.

    Desmonds criteria for manager:

    Irish - check

    Mate - check

    Heard through the grapevine, that the next manager will be a human, they will be male, they have played pro and born in Europe. They have also been on the tele doing pundit work in the past and use social media. Hope this helps.

    If it is Keane, I'd imagine the only hold up is him agreeing to have some coaching structure under him in the same way Gerrard has one at Sevco.

    By all accounts, it is Michael Beale who is the brains behind the operation, Gerrard is just the figurehead in the dressing room who commands respect and who 'oversees' it all.

    Perhaps that is the change in structure being envisaged, rather than a properly qualified DOF overseeing the whole project. It would certainly be in line with the chronic lack of ambition that seems to be pervasive throughout the club.

    I appreciate that unlike Lennon, Keane would be professional and demand high standards, but I just have a bad feeling about the whole thing.

    he has one fukin mean temper,, IF and i say IF , there better be a very calming second in charge.

    Keane is the sort of person who would nut the ref if he thought the ref was wrong

    he hasnt really been out of the game for 10 years though and the fact he showed a bit of humility by taking an assistant role would lead me to believe that he has the desire to improve .he managed to get sunderland promoted from the championship and they are a basketcase ,i would consider that a success he would probably have to perform miracles at thoes two clubs to improve their standings.i definitly think there are better options and i dont think he'd be a complete disaster either .

    I doubt it would be Roy Keane, but if it was I wouldn’t back him.

    I think backing someone because they’re the Celtic manager and “that’s what we do” is lazy.

    Whatever you think of Roy Keane, he would be getting the job because he’s Irish and has a connection to our billionaire dictator. That is simply wrong.

    Whether it worked out or not in the short term, in the long term the damage would be catastrophic. It’s the wrong way to run the club.

    I can’t believe supporters are already forgetting how we were treated this season. It baffles me that there are so many not looking at the bigger picture of where we are as a club vs. the rest of Europe.

    We’ve all enjoyed the last 9 years but we have grossly underachieved and continue to sink in Europe. Now we are happy with the occasional good group stage.. in the Europa League.

    Desmond doesn’t even pay the * bills, we do, but people are still happy for him to pick the manager and will accept it if it’s Roy Keane.

    Can we end the ‘Celtic Men’ birthday caird childish pish and just do what every other successful European club is doing?

    Are you saying you're going to turn your back on the club if they appoint a manager you dont want? For the record I dont want Keane either.
