Next Celtic manager odds: Eddie Howe remains favourite as Roy Keane and Enzo Maresca drift further

Eddie Howe won’t budge from top of the market, but a whole host of other options leaves Celtic fans waiting in suspense.

Eddie Howe to Celtic? Former-Bournemouth boss the bookies’ favourite 

Former Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe remains the clear favourite to be named next permanent Celtic manager, with odds drifting on other key contenders.  

Howe leads the market at 11/10 best price, although a handful of other firms make the appointment odds-on at 10/11 and 4/7 respectively.

Who are the other contenders?

Caretaker boss John Kennedy has shortened considerably with firms who pay out after 10 games in charge, with Sky Bet now showing 5/4.  

That’s in stark comparison to the 11/8 being offered by Bet Victor and even the 15/8 on show at William Hill.   

Roy Keane (16/1), Steve Clarke (25/1), Frank Lampard (28/1) and and Diego Martinez (33/1) follow next in the market. 

oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Just last week Sky Sports pundit Roy Keane was backed into odds-on favourite, but that steam has halted.  

“Keane was backed into as short as 4/9 following reports he was being considered, but has since drifted all the way out to 16/1.  

“At the time of writing, there have been more different favourites (8) for the Celtic job as the side has wins (7) in 2021.”
