The Search Continues as Walter Smith Rejects Wolves

Mark Cohen by Mark Cohen / 23 February 2012, 12:45

Walter Smith has become the third manager to reject Wolves as the club continue to search for Mick McCarthy’s successor. The former Rangers boss was expected to accept a short term contract to manage the relegation threatened club until the end of the season. However, it has today emerged that Smith has turned down the offer leaving Wolves in limbo. The club have twice tried to tempt Alan Curbishley but to no avail and on Wednesday their other main target Brian McDermott signed a new contract with Reading.

The question now is: who is left? It appears that Wolves may have to settle for Steve Bruce who has been there or thereabouts in the Next Wolves Manager Betting ever since the market opened up. The 51-year-old, who was interviewed for the job last week, is reportedly eager for a return to management following his sacking by Sunderland back in November. Bruce has top flight experience with Sunderland, Wigan and Wolves’ local rivals Birmingham City.

Another option is the recently unemployed Lee Clark. The hugely talented young manager was surprisingly sacked by Huddersfield Town last week amidst speculation linking him with the then vacant Leeds job. However, Leeds have since snapped up Neil Warnock leaving Clark open to offers. However, he may be hampered by his lack of managerial experience and he would be considered a gamble as he has never managed in the Premier League. Roy Keane also features in the betting, with the former Sunderland and Ipswich boss believed to be keen to get back into management.
