Alan Stubbs is the latest former Celt in the running to replace Davie Moyes as manager of Everton.
With the odds on Malky Mackay and Neil Lennon starting to drift current reserve team coach Stubbs has emerged from the pack with his odds down to 5/1 with some bookies.
Liverpool born and bred Stubbs enjoyed two spells as a player with his boyhood favourites and has ambitions to get into management.
Brighton boss Gus Poyet has also attracted interest from punters with no official word coming out of Everton.
The retirement of Alex Ferguson and sacking of Roberto Mancini is certain to kick-off a managerial merry-go-round down south with Chelsea also in the market for a new boss when Rafa Benitez’s tenure comes to an end.
As things stand there will be four former Celts managing in the Premiership next season assuming Paul Lambert and Paolo di Canio steer Aston Villa and Sunderland clear of relegation to join Moyes and Mackay in the top flight.
A draw at The Emirates will almost certainly ensure Wigan’s relegation unless they can beat Villa while Sunderland lose at Spurs with a goal difference deficit of 11 to be made up.
