Bookies Slash Odds on Chris Hughton Taking Over at Celtic After Brighton Sacking

Chris Hughton has been sacked by Brighton today – and the bookmakers have immediately installed him as one of the new favourites to takeover at Celtic next season.

The ex-Republic of Ireland international was given his marching orders by the Premier League outfit this morning, despite leading them to promotion from the Championship two seasons ago, keeping them up for two consecutive campaigns and reaching the FA Cup semi-final.

Neil Lennon is currently the interim boss at Celtic but yesterday’s extremely underwhelming 2-0 defeat to arch-rivals Rangers could be fatal to his chances of landing the job on a permanent basis.

And bookies such as SportNation have now priced Hughton at just 3/1 second favourite behind Lennon, who is 6/5, following today’s news.

The 60-year-old has previously managed Newcastle United and Norwich City in England’s top-flight – so could he be the man to take up the reins at Parkhead?

What do you think?
