Next Celtic manager odds: Steve Clarke new clear favourite despite Euro 2020 duties with Scotland

The current Scotland boss is now favourite to take over The Hoops, as pressure continues to build on Neil Lennon.

  • Steve Clarke is now as short as 9/4 to be the next Celtic manager.
  • He's the clear favourite in the market ahead of current assistant manager John Kennedy.


Next Celtic manager odds: Steve Clarke cut to clear favourite 

Odds have been decisively cut on Scotland national team manager Steve Clarke being named the next permanent Celtic boss.

The Scotsman has been cut from 16/1 into the 3/1 best price in the market, with his odds continuing to shorten.

However, a number of firms are offering even shorter odds, with 9/4 and 5/2 both on offer elsewhere.

Punters have been happy to part with their cash on Clarke, with 41% of all bets in that time frame, backing the Tartan Army boss.

Who else is in the market to be the next Celtic boss?

That means a shake-up for the rest of the market, with former favourite Rafa Benitez sliding out to 5/1, alongside the internal option of John Kennedy 5/1.

Former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe has been as short as 4/7 for the job, although now finds himself off the pace in the betting at 10/1.


Frank Lampard (16/1), Mark Hughes (20/1) and Jack Ross (20/1) follow next, with Preston boss Alex Neil being considered a 20/1 shot.

In terms of title odds, Celtic have now slid out to 66/1 to somehow mount a comeback on Rangers, with the Ibrox side as short as 1/1000 with some bookmakers.

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “The revolving door of favourites speaks volumes to the current mess Celtic are in – with no clear plan for life after Lennon.
