Calls for former Celtic boss Martin O’Neill to return to football as manager of Manchester United gathered pace last week after the Reds crashed out of the Champions League. The 2-1 loss to Benfica in Lisbon left Man Utd stranded at the bottom of Group D with just six points from six games and no way of making the lucrative last 16. ‘Sadly’ for Man Utd, O’Neill continued to rebuff attempts by the Glazer brothers to lure him to Old Trafford, saying he was too busy working at Herbert Smith (in the guise of partner Adam Johnson) on the AWG-Morrison Construction litigation to think about football. Shame. Not.
