ROY KEANE has admitted he is eager to return to club management.
But the Republic of Ireland No.2 refused to be drawn on the possibility of taking from Ronny Deila at Celtic.
Keane, who spent six months at the Hoops before retiring as a player in 2006, has been Martin O’Neill’s assistant since November 2013 and will be involved in the Euro Finals in France in the summer.
Asked if a return to club management is in his long-term plans, the former Sunderland and Ipswich gaffer replied: “And the shorter term, as well.
“I’m not going to be an assistant for the next 20 years. Having said that, I am enjoying my role.”You have to learn from your own mistakes. It’s no good me analysing Martin all the time. Obviously, I’ve my own personality and, hopefully, I can get back into that soon.”I’m under contract until the summer with the FAI and I’m not going to lose sight of that.
“There are always jobs out there and I’m not going out looking for jobs, if people want you they come looking for you.
“I’m enjoying it with Martin, but the best place for me to learn is back in the hot-seat.”
Asked directly about the Celtic job, Keane fired back: “Nah, no. No comment.”
