Celtic are looking for a new manager as Ronny Deila will leave in the summer.

Alan Brazil suggested on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (broadcast from 6am, May 9) that Roy Keane would not be a good manager for Celtic.

Keane, who ended his professional playing career at Celtic, has been linked with the managerial job at the Bhoys.

Ronny Deila is in charge of Celtic at the moment, but the Norwegian will leave the Scottish Premiership giants at the end of the season.

According to a recent report in The Sunday Post, Celtic are interested in appointing Keane as their new manager and will offer the Manchester United legend a transfer kitty of £15 million in order to tempt him to take the job.

Brazil, though, believes that Keane would not be a good managerial appointment for the Bhoys.

Former Rangers midfielder Ray Wilkins has also suggested that the Republic of Ireland assistant manager may struggle to manage a Celtic team where the players are not as good as he was when he was playing.

“I have got a problem with Roy, not as a man, as a player, brilliant, what a player, and steel, he gets down that pitch, rolls his sleeves up, brilliant, but man-management, I don’t think he is any good at all,” said Brazil on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT on Monday morning (broadcast from 6am, May 9).

“I think sometimes when you have been such as a fantastic footballer as Roy Keane has been, it’s very difficult for a lot of these guys to accept the fragility of someone else,” added former Rangers midfielder Wilkins.

“They expect them to be as good as they were, and that doesn’t happen. You have got to respect that they are not as good as you. And if you can’t accept that, then you have got a massive problem.”

Celtic have won the Scottish Premiership title this season and will hope to progress to the group stage of the 2016-17 Champions League campaign.
