Henrik Larsson and Roy Keane respond when asked about becoming Celtic manager

Ronny Deila will leave Celtic at the end of the season.

Henrik Larsson has told Expressen that he isn't thinking about becoming Celtic manager, whilst Roy Keane tried to avoid the subject completely, as quoted by the Daily Record.

Celtic confirmed earlier today that manager Ronny Deila will leave the club at the end of the season, following a shaky campaign which will see the Bhoys win just one trophy.

That wasn't good enough for the Celtic hierarchy, and now the search is on for a new manager to maintain the club's place at the top of Scottish football, with Rangers' return to the Scottish Premiership causing some level of panic at Celtic Park, especially since Mark Warburton's men beat Celtic in the Scottish Cup on Sunday.

Naturally, with Deila heading out of the club at the end of the season, a number of former Celtic players have been touted for the job; David Moyes, Malky Mackay and Neil Lennon all used to play in the famous green and white hoops, and have been suggested as possible replacements for Deila.

Now, legendary former Celtic striker Henrik Larsson - currently managing in his native Sweden with Helsingborgs - has told Expressen that, whilst his name has been mentioned for the job, he is focusing on his current job.

"It's nothing I think about at the moment," said Larsson. "I'm only focusing on Helsingborgs IF. If I say this or if I say that it could be wrong. What I can say is that I'm not thinking about it now. I'm only focusing at Helsingborgs IF," he added.

Additionally, former Celtic midfielder Roy Keane has been asked about possibly taking the reins at Celtic Park, but he has been quoted by the Daily Record as playing the talk down, highlighting his two current jobs as an ITV pundit and assistant to ex-Celtic boss Martin O'Neill with the Republic of Ireland national team.

"I’ve two jobs, ITV and Ireland. No comment," said Keane - which isn't exactly a total denial, but his comments certainly won't make him a favourite for the job.
