Roy Keane is one of four men being considered by Millwall as a potential managerial replacement for Niel Harris, a report from the Daily Mail has claimed.
Millwall are searching for a new boss after Neil Harris stepped down from the role on Thursday, after four and a half years in charge at The Den.
According to the latest reports, Millwall are considering Keane – who has previously spent spells in the second-tier as a manager with Sunderland and Ipswich, winning promotion to the Premier League with the former in 2007 – as a potential replacement for Harris.
As well as Keane, Gary Rowett, who has been out of work since leaving Stoke City in January, and Motherwell boss manager Stephen Robinson, are also thought to have been discussed as potential options for the role.
It has also been claimed that the Championship side are keen to speak to Forest Green Rovers boss Mark Cooper about the vacancy.
Rovers are currently top of the League Two standings following their 3-1 win over Crawley Town on Saturday, having reached the fourth-tier play-offs last season.
Following their 2-1 win over Leeds United on Saturday, Millwall are now 15th in the Championship, with 14 points from their opening 11 league games of the season.
This is an interesting one.
Of those discussed, Keane is probably the most high profile name to have been linked with the role, which could be appealing to Millwall.
It has however, been sometime since he has actually held the main managerial role at any team, so you wonder whether that is a position he will be able to step back into.
Even so, with Harris’ departure having come so suddenly, it does seem worth crediting Millwall for the speed with which they have drawn up such a list of replacements amidst the build-up to the Leeds game, and they now have the international break to look to secure a replacement for Harris.
