Who’ll Replace Big Yogi?

PUNTERS who backed John Hughes to win the SPL sack race were celebrating after he parted company with Hibs “by mutual consent”.

Now they’re trying to invest some of their profit wisely by predicting who’ll take over at Easter Road.

The usual former Hibs stars and SPL bosses have been priced up but will Rod Petrie and his directors pull a name from left field as they did when they handed Tony Mowbray his first managerial post a few years ago.

So it’s a choice between an experienced hand or someone untried at the top level and McBookie.com reckon Hibs will play it safe.

Former Dunfermline, Aberdeen and Kilmarnock gaffer Jimmy Calderwood is their 4-1 favourite but he won’t excite the hard-to-please Leith faithful.

Up-and-comer Derek Adams of Ross County, who led his side to the Scottish Cup Final last season, is 5-1 with ex-Hibs midfielder Michael O’Neill a 6-1 chance.

Former St Mirren gaffer Gus MacPherson, another looking for a job, is 7-1 followed by 8-1 Mogga and 10-1 his former assistant Mark Venus.

Hamilton boss Billy Reid could be a shout at 10s after the great jobs he’s done at New Douglas Park and St Johnstone chief Derek McInnes is also 10s.

Then we have the likes of 14-1 shots Alan Pardew and Pat Fenlon, the Irishman who wasn’t allowed to take over Dundee United last season, and ex-Bradford boss Stuart McCall at 16-1.

One interesting name is Henrik Larsson at 16s. The ex-Celtic striker has always said he’d love to return to Scotland one day and is currently cutting his managerial teeth in his Swedish homeland.

McBookie.com have seen plenty of money on the market but a clear favourite for the post has yet to emerge.

Who do you think will be next in the hotseat at Easter Road? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
