Celtic are reportedly still interested in David Moyes and Roy Keane.

According to The Scottish Sun, Roy Keane and David Moyes are still in contention for the Celtic job despite the club holding talks with Brendan Rodgers.

The Bhoys are on the lookout for a new manager, having announced last month that current boss Ronny Deila will be leaving the club this summer, with his contract not being renewed.

The Norwegian may have won the Scottish Premiership title in both of his two years in charge, but underwhelming displays in Europe ultimately cost Deila his job.

Now, Celtic are searching for a top manager to replace Deila, and Sky Sports revealed on Tuesday afternoon that former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has held a second round of talks with the Bhoys as he edges towards taking the job.

Now, The Scottish Sun report that whilst Celtic are pressing ahead with a move for Rodgers, two former Bhoys players are still in the running for the job in David Moyes and Roy Keane.

Moyes, a former Celtic defender, has been out of work since November having lost his job in Spain with Real Sociedad, and he is looking for a steady job to rebuild his reputation.

Once seen as one of the top managers in the Premier League, the 53-year-old's career has been in decline ever since leaving Everton in 2013, and a return to Glasgow could be just what he needs to kickstart his career again.

Whilst he's believed to be in the thoughts of the Celtic hierarchy, it's also claimed that Roy Keane is still in contention for the job too.

Keane, currently working as Martin O'Neill's assistant with the Republic of Ireland national team, ended his playing career with Celtic and was heavily linked with the job back in 2014, before the job went to Deila.

Now possibly looking for a return to club management, Keane is believed to be a candidate for the Celtic job even with Rodgers deep in talks.
