Next Republic of Ireland manager odds: Keane and Lennon in the running

| 06.09.2021

Next Republic of Ireland manager odds and contenders

Stephen Kenny’s reign as Republic of Ireland manager is under threat after a miserable 1-1 draw against Azerbaijan over the weekend meant his side have just one point from their opening four games.

With qualification for the World Cup almost out of reach, Kenny could be sacked if the Republic lose to Serbia in Tuesday’s World Cup qualifier.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has been chalked up as the 7/2 favourite to take over but Roy Keane is right behind him at 4/1.

Former Ireland striker Robbie Keane is next on the list at 8/1 alongside Chris Hughton while Keith Andrews is priced at 10/1.

Other names in the betting include Shay Given at 16/1, Mick McCarthy at 20/1 and Sam Allardyce at 25/1.

Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes said: “With Stephen Kenny’s future in doubt, talk has turned to his potential successor and since betting opened there are only two names punters are interested in.

“Both Neil Lennon and Roy Keane have attracted early money and have been placed as the early front-runners for the job.”
