Paul Hartley on Roy Keane’s prospects as Celtics manager
Former Celtic midfielder Paul Hartley discusses the prospect of Roy Keane taking over at Parkhead.
Speak on the Celtic Huddle Podcast as log, Hartley listed the pros and cons of having Keane on board.
Keane, who of course also played for the Celtics, will be a big player who has a passion for the game.
But does his method work for modern players? Maybe the Celtics need a more tactical coach.

“Roy Keane is passionate. I love hearing him talk, I love watching him as a player, will he be the next Celtic head coach? It’s a possibility, but the players are different now.
“He’s going to be the box office, if Steven Gerrard is still at Rangers next year it would be great if Roy Keane comes to Celtic. I think if he gets the job, I’m sure Think he’ll take it.”
“I think Celtic fans are expecting a great manager right now. Saying to Celtic fans ‘give us your season ticket money’ – without knowing who the head coach is, would be very difficult.
“I think they may have lost trust in the board. To get them back on the field, I think Dermot Desmond has to go and get a big-name manager in. Now, it’s not easy.
“If the Celtics are going to find a great manager, there’s a good chance someone will be out of a job. The fans have had enough this season and I think they’re looking forward to a big name in the summer.”

It will be interesting to see what Keane does with the Celtics — but it will be a gamble for the board.
Keane is similar to Neil Lennon in its emphasis on passion and commitment. If the Celtics are to change their fortunes next season, especially in Europe, they may need more than that.
It would be a great story for Keane and Gerrard to meet again.
But what is the recent evidence that Keane is a top manager? That’s not much, and his motivational methods may not work in 2021, especially with a team that lacks confidence after a nightmare season.
