Roy Keane is the ideal man to succeed Ronny Deila at Celtic, according to Soccer Saturday pundit Charlie Nicholas. Patrick Willis 49ers Jersey . 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.

McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. Frank Gore Youth Jersey . LUCIE, Fla. . Reigning world champion Eve Muirhead of Scotland opened with a 12-2 rout of Winnipegs Jennifer Jones in a battle of teams bound for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. (STATS) -- North Dakota States success during its five-year reign as FCS national champion is well documented. In fact, the Bisons 75 wins are more than any team in college football.The Bisons upset of Iowa last month was the programs 15th appearance on ESPN or ESPN2 since 2011. Plus, the two appearances by ESPNs College GameDay in Fargo and 40-plus games on ESPN3 keep the Bison on everybodys mind.That includes high school recruits who want to keep NDSU at the top of the FCS.Bison Nation is great for the exposure of the FCS level, but is it great for all the other FCS schools trying to compete with the Bison? Is it just making the gap between them and the rest of the nation larger?Most likely, but some embrace that challenge.They have everything they need in terms of facilities and budget and coaching staff, the community support -- the things we all want, South Dakota State coach John Stiegelmeier said.In this case at South Dakota State, with a new stadium, its slowly growing towards that direction. I tell our coaches, I tell our players, weve got to beat them, you have to beat them on the field. They have an unbelievable home-field advantage at the Fargodome. If you did a study, I cant imagine the impact that environment has on scores and games and so on.So maybe if they stumble a couple times and they dont get every playoff game in the Fargodome prior to Frisco (site of the FCS championship game), that slows em down a little bit. But I have tremendous respect for North Dakota State, for coach (Chris) Klieman -- always have and always will. Hey, theyre doing something we all are trying to do.The teams that generally have the best chance of stopping the dynasty are right within the Bisons Missouri Valley Football Conference. Since 2011, four of their five losses have come from four different teams within their conference.Northern Iowa coach Mark Farley, whose team has perhaps battled NDSU the hardest in recent years, believes the financial commitments that schools are making to their football programs will raise them as well, ultimately cutting into the gap.Tough games await NDSU. After Saturdays visit to Missouri State, it plays four straight MVFC teams ranked in the Top 25.Of course, beating the Bison in the regular season means only so much. Somebody is going to have to beat them in the playoffs to start bringing them back to the pack.---=FCS GAME OF THE WEEK=The Matchup: No. 6 Richmond (4-1, 1-1 CAA) at No. 16 Albany (4-0, 1-0)Kickoff: 3:30 p.m. ET at Casey Stadium (8,500) in Albany, New YorkSeries: Richmond leads, 3-0 (most recent meeting: Richmond won 38-31 at home on Oct. 31)The Skinny: Richmond safety David Jones had five takeaways (four interceptions, one fumble recovery) in last years Spiders win.QB Kyle Lauletta ranks second in the FCS in passing yards (1,504).
