Celtic ‘keeper backs potential new boss to be successful

Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has backed potential new boss Roy Keane to be successful if he is appointed manager of the Scottish club.

The 33 year old was bought by Keane for £9million from Hearts when he was manager at Sunderland, and the Scot told Sky Sports he had a good experience with the now Ireland assistant manager:

“I know how he liked things to run at Sunderland and if he was appointed then I’m sure he would do well and would be successful. He’s hard but fair. What you see is really what you get.”

“With Roy Keane, he was an aggressive player who wanted to win every match and from what I’ve seen he’s exactly the same as a manager.”

The Former Ipswich and Sunderland head coach has been installed as the new bookies’ favourite for the position at Celtic Park.

Ronny Deila will leave his position after the last two matches of the Scottish Premier League season.

Gordon has previously praised the Norwegian for revitalising his career after he was released by Sunderland in 2012.

A series of serious injuries left him unable to make much of an impact in England, but after two years without a club, he was signed by Deila in 2014 before going on to become a first team regular at Celtic.
