Next Celtic Manager Odds

Celtic are still without a permanent manager at the helm, with John Kennedy remaining in caretaker charge despite strong rumours that Eddie Howe was about to take charge at the Old Firm club. The bookies still make the former Bournemouth manager favourite to take charge, although Lucien Favre, Roy Keane and Enzo Maresca are among the candidates who are also trading at single-figure odds on this betting market.

Lucien Favre the Big Market Mover in Celtic Manager Market

While Eddie Howe has been Celtic manager betting favourite for several weeks, there has been money for Lucien Favre more recently, with the Swiss football manager having bags of experience and he was most recently in charge of Borussia Dortmund where he served between 2018-20.

Favre was previously manager at Borussia Monchengladbach and Nice, with the sixty-three year-old potentially open to taking charge of this Scottish Premiership club and it would be a valuable acquisition as Celtic bid to regain the title that they lost to Rangers this season.

It remains to be seen whether Favre desperately wants the job although he’s only a best price 9/4 with Paddy Power to get the job and that suggests that a number of insiders have been backing someone who would look to freshen up the squad and make Celtic more effective on a domestic and European basis.

Roy Keane Third Favourite to Return to Celtic as Manager

Roy Keane has been out of football management since being the assistant to Martin O’Neill at Nottingham Forest in 2019, while he’s not actually held a Head Coach role at any professional football club since leaving Ipswich Town in 2011, with the 49-year-old having largely focused on a media career where he’s regarded as a straight-talking pundit on Sky Sports.

However, Keane is currently the third favourite on the Next Celtic Manager betting market, with the bookies as short as 7/1 about the Irishman and it’s worth noting that the former midfielder had a brief spell at the Scottish Old Firm club during the 2005/6 season and clearly has some kind of affinity with a club who might welcome the fire that the Manchester United legend would bring to the role.


Bookmakers' Next Permanent Manager Markets


Maresca Could be Surprise Choice to Replace Lennon

Enzo Maresca is now trading at 9/1 with the best bookmakers to become the next permanent manager of Celtic FC, with the Italian having been linked to the vacant position and he’s currenly manager of the Manchester City Elite Development squad which indicates that he has a huge pedigree.

Maresca was a brilliant player during a successful career which saw him win the 2001-2 Serie A title with Juventus, with the 41-year-old having been assistant manager at West Ham during the 2018/19 season, with the coach highly regarded by Pep Guardiola at City and it’s plausible that he’ll be interested in taking charge at Celtic.

Will Steve Clarke Replace Neil Lennon As Celtic Manager?

Steve Clarke will be leading Scotland out in the delayed 2020 European Championships this summer although there has been a recent surge of money for the national team manager when it comes to the soon-to-be-vacant Celtic manager’s position, with the former West Brom boss being touted as Neil Lennon’s replacement.

William Hill currently offer a best price 14/1 about Clarke taking charge at Celtic Park when the hot seat becomes available in a few months’ time, with the 57-year-old having nationality on his side for this role, while he has also been the assistant manager of Chelsea, West Ham and Liverpool.

Stints at West Brom and Reading were largely difficult for the Scot, although the way he transformed the fortunes of Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership led to Clarke being given the nod by the Scottish FA and it might well be the case that Celtic have already reached out to him with regard to replacing Lennon.

Frank Lampard Looking For New Role After Chelsea Split

It would be pretty interesting if Frank Lampard filled the dugout at Celtic considering his main adversary would be former England team-mate Steven Gerrard who has done such a good job at Rangers. The press would go mad to see these two coaches lock horns although the Celtic role could be well outside the comfort zone of Lampard.

The former Chelsea manager began his coaching career with a relatively successful time at Derby County before heading to Stamford Bridge, although he struggled to meet expectation levels with the Blues and was recently replaced by Thomas Tuchel. Perhaps a high-profile role in Scotland could be just what the doctor ordered.
