Alan Stubbs is the latest former Celt in the running to replace Davie Moyes as manager of Everton.

Liverpool born and bred Stubbs enjoyed two spells as a player with his boyhood favourites and has ambitions to get into management.

Wigan’ Roberto Martinez remains the favourite to replace Moyes with no decision likely until after the fate of the FA Cup winners is known.

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’ tenure comes to an end.

As things stand there will be four former Celts managing in the next season assuming and Paolo di Canio steer and Sunderland clear of relegation to join Moyes and Mackay in the top flight.

Lambert will watch Wigan’ trip to anxiously tonight knowing that anything less than an away win ensures that Villa stay up ahead of Sunday’ final match- away to the FA Cup winner.

A draw at The Emirates will almost certainly ensure Wigan’s relegation unless they can beat Villa while Sunderland lose at with a goal difference deficit of 11 to be made up.
