Next Celtic manager odds: Ex-Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre cut from 10/1 into 9/4 second favourite

Next Celtic manager odds: Ex-Borussia Dortmund boss Lucien Favre cut from 10/1 into 9/4 second favourite

Lucien Favre is the latest big name to be linked to the Celtic job. Could the Swiss manager be en route to Parkhead?

Lucien Favre to Celtic? Former-Dortmund boss' odds start tumbling.

Former Borussia Dortmund manager Lucien Favre has been cut into short-priced second favourite to take over at Celtic.

Bookmakers have slashed odds from 10/1 into 9/4 on the Swiss manager taking over at the Glasgow side, with a number of bets placed on Favre in the last 48 hours.

That means Favre now only trails perennial market favourite Eddie Howe to scoop the job at Parkhead, with the former-Bournemouth boss available at 4/9.

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “If Favre was to shorten to market leader, it would mark the ninth favourite in the hunt for Neil Lennon’s replacement.

“Eddie Howe, John Kennedy, Roy Keane, Enzo Maresca, Steve Clarke, Frank Lampard, Chris Wilder and Rafa Benitez have all been considered the most likely at some point.

“In the last 24 hours, 38% of all bets placed in the market have backed Favre to be the man in the dugout on the first day of next season– exciting news for Celtic fans.”
