A LEADING bookmaker has dramatically cut Alex Ferguson’s odds of becoming the next Republic of Ireland manager following a flood of support this morning.

“We laid some large bets on Sir Alex Ferguson at 66/1 on Friday morning and the cut him into 33/1. The support continued to come and we were forced to cut him again, into 20/1,” said Leon Blanche, of Boylesports.

The long-time favourite to replace Giovanni Trapattoni has been Martin O’Neill. Although he remains odds on, now at 4/5, this represents a massive drift having been as short at one point as 1/10.

Mick McCarthy is available at 7/2 to reunite with the boys in green.

Noel King, who has been appointed as interim Ireland manager for the forthcoming matches against Germany and Kazakhstan is on offer at 10/1 whilst former captain, Roy Keane can be backed at 18/1.
