JOHN O’SHEA says his “gut feeling” tells him that Roy Keane has already made up his mind to quit his job with Ireland and move to Celtic.

It looks very much like it,” O’Shea said this morning about Keane’s possible departure to Celtic, as the Irish squad prepared to pack up and head to London for tomorrow’s friendly against Italy.

“From the start of the week it snowballed into something, having talks with Celtic so I would be very surprised if it doesn’t get across the line.

“He hasn’t given any indication to us, the lads in the squad have been trying to get a few hints but Roy has a good poker face. But it looks like we will be losing a very important member of staff for the upcoming games.

“It’s something I am sure he will enjoy and he will relish the challenge of managing a fantastic club like Celtic. Let’s wait and see if it does happen,” added O’Shea.
