Roy Keane is the ideal man to succeed Ronny Deila at Celtic, according to Soccer Saturday pundit Charlie Nicholas. On Wednesday, Deila confirmed he would end his two-year association with the Hoops next month, despite the club being on course to secure the Scottish Premiership title for the second time during his reign. The Norwegian, who was appointed as Neil Lennons successor in June 2014, had refused to comment on his future in the immediate aftermath of Celtics Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Rangers at Hampden Park on Sunday. Deila to leave Celtic Celtic have confirmed manager Ronny Deila will leave the club at the end of the season Charlie Nicholas wants to see Roy Keane take over at Celtic. Deila has come under fire from certain sections of the Celtic support this season, with the clubs failures in European competition a particular reason for their disharmony.Keane, currently the No 2 to Republic of Ireland manager Martin ONeill, has not held a full managerial position since leaving Ipswich Town in 2011, but Nicholas believes the former Manchester United midfielder would bring a different energy to Celtic if appointed as the clubs new manager. Former Celtic player John Hartson isnt surprised that Ronny Deila will leave the club this summer I would like Roy Keane to get it because I think he would sort a lot of people out, Nicholas told Sky Sports Now. He would clear the decks. I am not saying he would be the greatest tactician, but I think he would bring a different drive and a different energy to the club. Lennon keen to speak to Celtic Celtic have confirmed that manager Ronny Deila will leave the club at the end of the season He would be the type Id be looking at to take on people, give him the responsibility and let him get on with it. He would be my ideal choice, I think there are others out there, but I am not convinced the owner or chief executive will step aside and say this is the way it has got to be because theres an issue with the clubs budget. Nicholas fears Celtic could fail to win the Scottish Premiership title this season Nicholas also questioned the timing of Deilas announcement and fears the uncertainty over the appointment of his successor could derail Celtics push towards a fifth successive league title. Celtic are eight points clear of second-placed Aberdeen with five matches remaining. I think the timing is awful, Nicholas added. I think to say it is more about the club than him, that will backfire on him today, I think it is about him because he is the one that has made the statement. This is like Manuel Pellegrini when he announced he was leaving. I said at the time theres a certain aspect of what you keep in house. Celtic are going for the title and Ronny has suffered along with the board and the people who run the club who are not doing their job right at the minute. Celtic manager Ronny Deila will step down at the end of the season It is a club that has gone stale. For Ronny to announce this now, it will not please a lot of people, they expected it, but you keep it in house. You get the title wrapped up, then the business is done and you say well done, congratulations and good luck in the future. But if they were to slip up this weekend and Aberdeen catch them, it would be an absolute mess, complete mayhem. It will still be about Ronny Deila because he is the story today.

If he is gone, few would be surprised.A franchise built on the strength of its defence, with names such as Butkus and Singletary, has been coming up short in a big way.Whether its the coaching or talent, injuries or execution, the Bears have taken a big step back in that area after consistently ranking among the leagues best under former coach Lovie Smith.Theyre allowing a league-high average of 29.1 points, which is about as bad as last season when they allowed 29.9 per game and tied for second worst in the NFL.Chicago is also tied for 28th in yards allowed (377.8 yards per game) and ranks 30th against the pass despite a major off-season overhaul.Injuries cant be overlooked.They were hit hard in that area a year ago, and its been more of the same this time around.Theyve lost four starters to season-ending injuries, with middle linebacker D.J. Williams (neck), joining defensive end Lamarr Houston, cornerback Charles Tillman and linebacker Lance Briggs on injured reserve on Thursday.First of all, were not in the business of making excuses for injuries; we cant, coach Marc Trestman said.Linebacker Jonathan Bostic pinned the Bears struggles on the players — not the coaches. He insisted the issue is execution and thats on the guys wearing helmets and pads.Its not on the coaches, Bostic said. We go back and watch the film andd everybody will see it.dddddddddddd Everything coaches are coaching us (to do), it needs to show up in the game. It cant show up in two out of three plays because that one play where it didnt show up — where one player jumped out of the gap or didnt do exactly what were being coached to do — is when we give up a big play.Asked if he has been given enough talent to succeed, Tucker said: You have to deal in the moment and in the immediate situation, which is New Orleans. We feel good about the guys we have going into the game and our preparation, and thats really all that matters. We feel good about this group, whether theyre rookies or not, just collectively to go in there and get the job done in the game. Thats what were talking about.The Bears have allowed more passing plays of 20 or more yards — 51 — than all but one team, the Philadelphia Eagles.There was similar speculation about his future a year ago, and on Thursday, Tucker dismissed it as something that comes with the territory. He has coached 10 seasons in the NFL and eight in college, so its nothing new to him.Tucker was also asked about the opening at Wisconsin, where he played as a defensive back.He talked to athletic director Barry Alvarez, his former coach, about the job in 2012, but remained in Jacksonville as the Jaguars defensive co-ordinator. That position is open again after Gary Andersen left for Oregon State.Would Tucker be interested this time if his old coach contacted him?Thats a hypothetical, Tucker said. I try to stay out of those. Ultimately, the sole focus is New Orleans and preparing for those guys. Thats the only thing Im thinking about right now.NOTES: K Robbie Gould hopes to be ready after missing a game because of a pulled right quadriceps. He sat out practice along with S Chris Conte (back), OL Michael Ola (back) and LB Darryl Sharpton (hamstring). DT Jeremiah Ratliff (knee) was limited. ... Tucker said there is a good chance Bostic will move to middle linebacker with Williams out.___Online:AP NFL website: and China NFL Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Online Stitched Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Outlet College Jerseys For Sale Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys For Sale Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
