Ex-Ipswich Town manager Roy Keane wants the top job at Scottish giants Celtic, it has been reported.
Keane, 49, hasn't managed since being sacked as Blues boss in 2011, but retains a high profile in the game.
Keane, who finished his playing career at Celtic after securing legendary status at Manchester United, is 4/1 for the top job, with only Chris Wilder, who left his job as Sheffield United boss over the weekend, above him at 11/4.
Paul Lambert, sacked as Ipswich Town manager two weeks ago, is 25/1.
Should Keane, who's worked as assistant boss at the Republic of Ireland, Aston Villa and Nottingham Forest since leaving Portman Road, get the top job at Celtic, it would set-up a mouth-watering managerial battle with Steven Gerrard, who led bitter rivals Rangers to the Scottish Premiership title this season.
Other names in the frame for Celtic include Eddie Howe, Frank Lampard and Rafa Benitez.
