(Football) Di Canio keen on Celtic job: agent
(05-26 18:56)

Former Celtic forward Paolo Di Canio has declared an interest in taking over the manager's job at Celtic following the departure of Neil Lennon, according to his Italian agent.
Di Canio has been out of work since he was sacked by Sunderland last September.
The player's UK representative Phil Spencer was quoted by several newspapers as saying that the 45-year-old would be keen to be considered for the job at Celtic Park.
"Paolo would be keen to speak to Celtic,'' he claimed.
"He played for the club and he certainly has a good relationship with the fans.
"There has been no contact between Paolo and the club. But if there was, it's something he would consider.''
Di Canio joined Celtic from AC Milan in 1996 and went on to win the Scottish Professional Footballers' Associations' player of the year award in his first season.
But he then quit the club after just one season following a pay dispute with then owner Fergus McCann before moving to Sheffield Wednesday.
His spell in charge at Sunderland was dogged by controversy and he was axed just six weeks into the season after failing to win any of Sunderland's first five fixtures. -- AFP
