After Ipswich Town had sacked their Irish manager Jim Magilton earlier today, the future of ex-Sunderland boss, Roy Keane, began to look a little clearer tonight, when it emerged that the Irishman had travelled to the area for an interview.
Keane left the Stadium of Light in a fit of pique, when the Black Cats were experiencing a poor run of form in December, and has since been watching his telly and walking his dog.
But now, the ex-Manchester United and Republic of Ireland midfielder, who, at one time had been mentioned as a successor to Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford, has decided to come out of retirement, and is applying for a job as a tractor driver on a farm near Wisbech.
Keane is known to like getting his hands mucky, and was sen earlier today in his wellies. He flashed an angry glance at reporters who asked him for an interview, and growled:
"I'm off to see the tractor boys!"
