William Hills have given odds on the first SPL manager to be sacked next season and guess what? The favourite hasn’t yet been appointed. But yes, it doesn’t take a genius to work out that the new Hearts manager is the least likely to see the season out.
Personally, I think it might be worth against it because at this rate it doesn’t look like they’ll even have a manager for next season.
The odds are as follows:
FIRST SPL BOSS TO GO
9/4 Next Permanent Hearts Boss , 7/2 Jimmy Calderwood, 9/2 Jim Jeffries, 9 Mixu Paatelainen, 10 Mark McGhee, 12 Craig Brewster, 12 Gus McPherson, 16 Gordon Strachan, 20 Walter Smith, 25 Craig Levein, 25 John Hughes, 25 Billy Reid
A pound each on a few outsiders mightn’t be a bad bet, or it would be if it weren’t for Vladamir Romanov.
