Next Blackburn Rovers Manager Betting: Top 5 Names In The Mix

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 28 April 2016, 16:16

The Blackburn Rover manager conveyor belt is once again in full throw following the news that Paul Lambert will leave Ewood Park at the end of the season. Lambert's decision to activate his release clause means the Championship club will now subsequently begin their search for an eighth permanent boss since 2008.

Below we take a look at the early list of contenders in the Next Blackburn Rovers Manager Market (all odds courtesy of Sky Bet).

David Dunn

David Dunn has emerged as the early 7/4 favourite to be the manager who replaces the soon-to-be-departed Lambert in the dugout. Dunn, who played for the club between 2007 and 2015, got a brief taste for life as a manager this season, taking charge of Oldham between September and January, and now he'll no doubt be desperate to return to the managerial arena with his former club Rovers, where he is currently coaching the U21 side.

Tim Sherwood

Next in the running is another former Rovers player in the 4/1 priced Tim Sherwood, who won the Premier League with the club during his playing days. The outspoken boss has been out in the wilderness since losing his job at Aston Villa earlier this season, but you could bet your house on the former Tottenham gaffer returning to management this summer.

Gary Bowyer

Lambert's predecessor Gary Bowyer could find himself back at Blackburn less than six months after leaving the club. Bowyer, who managed Rovers between May 2013 and November last year, is the third favourite in the betting at 6/1. A return to Ewood Park makes little since, but then again this is Blackburn Rovers we are talking about.

Alan Irvine

It's no surprise that the former Rovers winger Alan Irvine (10/1) is in the mix at this early stage, given that he's currently working as an assistant to Lambert. The 57-year-old has previously managed the likes of Preston, Sheffield Wednesday, and most recently West Brom, while he's been working at Rovers since Lambert's arrival in November.

Neil Warnock

Neil Warnock has worked wonders since joining the seemingly doomed Rotherham back in February, with the club currently enjoying a superb 11 game unbeaten run - a sequence no one could have predicted - which has resulted in Championship safety for the second successive season. Warnock's future is unknown, but it's highly likely that he'll be managing in the Championship next term...the question is where? (12/1 to take charge of Blackburn).
