We reported earlier today that David Moyes’ odds to be the next Celtic boss had shortened but since then they’ve got even shorter and now in arguably the biggest twist in the Celtic managerial saga – Moyes is FAVOURITE for the Celtic job.
Like always, we would like to tell our readers that this isn’t an indication anything is fact or a forgone conclusion. Brendan Rodgers was nowhere near the top of the list three years ago when he got the Celtic job.
Betting on people shortens odds and the rumours started last night on social media about a potential Moyes appointment. This would have many scrambling to put on a bet when the Scotsman was an outside bet at 5/1. The odds are now significant shorter at 5/4 and Moyes overtakes Benitez as favourite.

David Moyes is not a popular appointment among Celtic fans and he would be an underwhelming choice. The former Manchester United manager would have to prove himself from day one in order to win over a sceptical support if it did happen. Working under those conditions could be detrimental.
Something certainly is brewing and the closer we get to the end of this week the more intense it’s likely to get.
