Roy Keane has already given damning Brendan Rodgers view amid Man United links

Roy Keane might not be the first port of call for Brendan Rodgers if he needs a job reference for Manchester United.

Under-pressure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains in post at Old Trafford, despite those two alarming home defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City prior to the November international break.

Rodgers is one of several names to have been mooted as a potential successor to the Norwegian.

However, key figures in the boardroom are standing by Solskjaer — mainly on account of the club having no succession plan for the United hot-seat.

Although he remains focused on Leicester City, as things stand, there wouldn’t be a shortage of Rodgers backers amid admiration from United, should the Premier League giants come calling for his coaching services.

Former Old Trafford skipper Keane wouldn’t necessarily be at the front of the queue in that regard, though.

During the Northern Irishman’s spell north of the border with Celtic, he piled praise on his beaten Hoops despite them being eliminated from the Champions League following a 1-0 group stage defeat to Anderlecht.

Speaking post-match, Rodgers said: “We’ve done that [finished third and qualified for the Europa League] having been the fourth seed in the group. It’s a great testament to the actual players getting through.

But Keane hit back during his role as a pundit. He added: “I thought it was a shocking result, a really poor performance. Brendan’s talking there about it being a great achievement.

What next for United and Solskjaer? Have your say in the comments section below.

“I think the key to management nowadays is to set your standards really, really low and you’ll be in the game for a long time. It’s just not acceptable for Celtic, it really isn’t.

“Losing at home to Anderlecht, come on, give me a break. You talk about them learning, but from looking at Celtic over the last one or two years in Europe, they’re not learning. They’re making exactly the same mistakes against top opposition. To me, they’re not learning.”
