ROY KEANE has hinted that if Celtic want him as their next manager they’ll have to come and get him.

The Bhoys confirmed on Wednesday that Ronny Deila will leave the club at the end of the campaign after two seasons in charge.

Republic of Ireland assistant manager Keane is one of several high profile names being linked with the summer vacancy, and he admits a return to a full management role is of appeal.

“I’m not going to be an assistant for the next 20 years; having said that I am enjoying my role,” said the former Ireland captain before an audience at the Bord Gáis Energy ‘Winning in Business’ seminar at Cork’s Clarion Hotel.

“There are always jobs out there and I’m not going to go out looking for jobs, if people want you they come looking for you. I’m enjoying it with Martin, but the best place for me to learn is back in the hot seat.”

However, with the European Championships on the horizon, Keane insists he will not lose focus on his current role with the FAI.

“Obviously, I’m under contract until the summer with the FAI and I’m not going to lose sight of that.”
