Former Ipswich Town boss Roy Keane is on the look-out for another management role.
The Irishman has left Nottingham Forest, where he had been working as Martin O'Neill's assistant.
Keane's last position as outright manager was with the Blues. He left Portman Road eight-and-a-half years ago.
Keane's time at Town certainly wasn't without its dramas!
The former Manchester United midfielder was in charge at Portman Road from April 2009 to January 2011.

He was eventually sacked by owner Marcus Evans after gesturing angrily towards critical supporters following a 1-0 home defeat to, ironicaly, Nottingham Forest.
However, his departure from the City Ground this weekend has been described as amicable.
