I will say firstly that I am no fan of Frank Lampard, not just because he is a ex Chelsea player and manager, he has acheived nothing in management of note at the top level, with a good season in the Championship a few years back being his best, he is not Celtic quality.

The Sun reports that odds on him have been slashed, here is the market as it currently stands.

Punters can get the 42-year-old at 6/1 on Betfair, a matter of hours after his Chelsea dismissal.

Rafa Benitez remains the favourite, with his price as low at 8/15.

Ex-Bournemouth gaffer Eddie Howe is also in the top three choices – with his odds currently sitting at 7/2.

Roy Keane and Jack Ross are outsiders at 14/1 for the potential job, while Neil Lennon’s assistant John Kennedy sits at an intriguing 8/1.

Twitter was also having its say with Lampard dividing supporters.
