Former Celtic manager Neil Lennon Is the bookie’s favourite to take the role of Republic of Ireland manager at 23/10.
Lennon resigned from his role at Celtic Park last season having failed to guide the Parkhead club to a record 10th title in a row. The 50-year-old Northern Irishman managed to win five league titles, four Scottish Cups and one Scottish League Cup at Celtic Park over the course of his two spells at the club between 2010 and 2014, as well as in 2019 to 2021 following the departure of Brendan Rodgers to Leicester City.
The former Celtic manager had a 70%-win record at his old club and has also managed the likes of Bolton Wanderers where he struggled, winning just 18 of 79 matches, as well as earning promotion from the Scottish Championship with Hibernian in the 2016/17 season before leaving by mutual consent in January 2019, less a month before he was appointed by Celtic.
This would be a good job for Lennon to take as doing well with the Republic of Ireland’s national team would only further enhance his reputation as a manager.
Lennon is priced at 23/10 to become the Republic of Ireland’s new manager.
