Ladbrokes have suspended betting on Alan Pardew to become the next manager to be sacked following his red card at the KC Stadium.
The 52 year-old was given his marching orders by referee Kevin Friend after clashing heads with Hull midfielder David Meyler after the Irish international collided with him on the sideline.
Meyler was booked while Pardew was given a red card, to add to a number of previous indiscretions, including clashing with Man City manager Manuel Pellegrini earlier this season.
Following the incident Ladbrokes announced it has suspended betting on the next Premier League manager to lose his job.The company's Alex Donohue said: "We wait to see how Pardew's actions are dealt with.
"Keeping the market open during games often keeps us on our toes but we've never come across circumstances like this to date."
