The final manager on this list is Paul Lambert, with the Scotsman currently out of work having left Ipswich Town via mutual consent in late February, with the East Anglian club eighth in League One.
Lambert hasn’t managed a team in Scotland since the 2005/06 campaign where he was a player-coach at Livingston. The 51-year-old is in desperate need of a positive spell in management, having being sacked by four of his last five clubs, with the only exception being that at Blackburn in 2015/16 where he triggered a clause in his contract after the club’s relegation to League One.
The managerial role at Aberdeen could be a good opportunity for Lambert to rebuild his career, as it is not a role where you have to win the league to be successful, qualifying for the Europa League via third place is usually the expectation of the club due to the quality of Rangers and Celtic. This is a more than doable task, which might suit Lambert, as all of his latest roles have had a lot of pressure on them.
Lambert has the odds of 14/1 to take what would be his sixth managerial job in six years.
