The former defender responded to a story about Keane going to Celtic, joking he would be the assistant.

He tweeted: “I’ve just packed my bags!!! Scotland here we come.”

Former Rangers midfielder Charlie Adam issued caution for Richards.

He said: “Stay in the studio big man. There’s a change of the guard in Scotland now.”
