I don’t fear losing my job: Keane

Ipswich manager Roy Keane has dismissed newspaper speculation he is set to lose his job at Portman Road.

Town have had a disappointing season under Keane and are set for a mid-table finish, way short of the play-offs, and the former Manchester United captain has been said to be close to the sack in the media over the last few days.

But Keane said: “I don't feel I am under any more pressure and I certainly don't take any notice of what the newspapers say. I never read them.

“If you think I am fearful of losing my job then you are wrong. If I lose my job then I lose my job.

“We want to aim for consistency between now and the end of the season but if the club wants to move me on they will move me on.”

Keane is being linked with a return to Celtic next season after the Scottish club ended Tony Mowbray's reign as manager.
