Roy Keane Tipped To Become Celtic Manager And Spark Rivalry With Steven Gerrard

Rangers ended the dominance of Celtic in Scotland's top division at the weekend when they sealed a historic 55th league title, so how will they bounce back next season?

The managerless Hoops current sit an incredible 20 points behind the leaders with six games to play.

Neil Lennon was relieved of his duties towards the end of February, with a dismal defeat to Ross County the final straw in a run where they lost four home games in a row.

They certainly need a boost in the coming months and former player Andy Townsend thinks former Celtic midfielder Roy Keane would be the perfect man to ignite the Rangers rivalry once more.

"Stevie G being an ex-Liverpool man, so you want an ex-United man... it's Keano ain't it?" Townsend told talkSPORT.

"I told you what the press conferences up there would be interesting on Fridays. Can you imagine?

"Celtic have now got to use the days and weeks ahead to get the right man in and make sure who they go for is certainly someone who can cut their deficit for what it currently is."

He continued: "They need someone who can ask serious questions as to whether Rangers can hang on to the trophy next year.

"I do think that Celtic over the years have gone for a few spurious ones that I've never quite got my head round.

"I do think this is an important one because Rangers have got a coach that is hungry and ambitious and has a desire to win more.

"I think Celtic need to think long and hard for who they're going to get in there."

Keane, who hasn't managed a club since Ipswich Town in 2011, has been linked with several jobs down the years but has remained a successful pundit with Sky Sports.

Do you think he is the right man the lead to Celtic fightback?
