Next Port Vale Manager Update: Former boss Rob Page enters the betting

Rob Page has burst into the betting at 10/1 (Bet Victor) to make a shock return to Port Vale.

The 42-year-old was dismissed by Northampton on Monday, and it just so happens that his former employers, Port Vale, remain on the hunt for a new manager following the Boxing Day departure of Bruno Ribeiro.

Page was in the Vale Park hot-seat prior to his short-lived eight month stint at Northampton, in what was his only other spell in the dugout.

Page spent just under two years in charge of Port Vale, saving the club from relegation in his first season at the helm, then steering his troops to a 12th-place finish in 2015/16, before leaving for the Cobblers in the summer.

However, Page is now back in the Job Centre after a rotten run of 10 defeats from what proved to be his final 12 matches at the helm, leaving the club one place and one point below Port Vale...

Could a return to Vale Park now be on the cards?

Unlikely, given the difficult relationship between Page and Valiants chairman Norman Smurthwaite, although not totally out of the question.

It’s Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink who remains the slender 6/4 favourite for the post, followed by caretaker boss Michael Brown, and former Dundee United manager Mixu Paatelainen, while Paul Ince, Frank Lampard and Phil Neville are further back in the betting.
