Iceland’s football association are refusing to comment on reports that controversial Corkman Roy Keane has been offered the job as manager's of the national team.

Reports emerged this morning that former Manchester United captain Keane has held talks to replace manager Olafur Johannesson.

The current boss is due to leave his position next month after four years in the job.

The Icelandic FA told RTÉ: "There are a number of managers linked the role.

‘’We have had several names linked including domestic managers, Roy Keane and former Sweden boss Lars Lagerback.

"We can't confirm or deny if Roy Keane is in contention for the job and there will be no further comment."

Keane is expected in Reykjavik to watch Iceland's Euro 2012 qualifier against Cyprus on Tuesday.

He sensationally walked out on the Irish team at the 2002 World Cup finals in Saipan.

Iceland are currently rock bottom of their Euro 2012 qualifier table after a dismal campaign.
