Ryan Giggs linked with move to Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough’s relegation back down to the Championship was confirmed a week ago following a 3-0 defeat at Chelsea, who have since been crowned Champions under Antonio Conte.

Over the weekend Boro's caretaker boss Steve Agnew took charge of his tenth game in the dugout - a 1-2 defeat to Southampton - meaning anyone who backed him in the betting for the job would have triumphed as bookmakers pay out after 10 matches.

Steve Agnew’s Middlesbrough Record:

  • 10 Games
  • 1 Win
  • 3 Draws
  • 6 Defeats

The attention now switches to the betting on who will be the club’s manager next season, with chairman Steve Gibson reportedly eager to bring in a new face, and it’s the ubiquitous Ryan Giggs (6/4) who currently leads the way at the summit of the market.

The former Man Utd assistant, who previously took charge of four games as caretaker manager, has been linked with a plethora of jobs since leaving the Red Devils last summer - Swansea, Sunderland, Nottingham Forest, and Wigan to name a few - but for whatever reason has since failed return to venture into the managerial arena.

It’s a pivotal summer for Giggs. If the Welshman doesn’t bag a job soon then his future prospects in management appear bleak.

Meanwhile, other names in the frame for the Riverside role include Agnew (4/1), former Boro defender Nigel Pearson (6/1), Huddersfield’s David Wagner (9/1) and the unemployed Alan Pardew at 12/1.

Sky Bet recently released the odds for next season, with Middlesbrough 3/1 to bounce back next season by winning promotion, 10/1 to hoist the league title, and 33/1 to sink down back to League One.
