Sergio’s Boys Had Better Show Heart Or He Will Be Shown The Door

Paulo Sergio was today named as Jim Jeffries successor at Hearts but William Hill already have him as the 7/1 third favourite to be the next SPL boss to leave his club. He is 1/2 to still be in charge of Hearts come the final day of the season and 6/4 to have left the club by then. Hearts are 40/1 to win the SPL and 16/1 to be runners-up, although, they are even money to finish in third place.

“Paulo Sergio has walked into possibly the most volatile of positions in Scottish football and could well be looking down the barrel of the gun should his troops fail to get off to a winning start,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

How many more managers will Hearts have this season: 1/2 none, 2/1 one; 7/1 two or more

McCoist Could Be Looking Like A Swede If Rangers Go Out

Ally McCoist’s Rangers take on Malmo in the Champions League qualifiers on Wednesday and the, already under pressure manager needs a result in Sweden. William Hill make Malmo the 1/2 favourites to qualify for the next round, Rangers are 6/4. Rangers are 13/10 favourites to win in 90 minutes, while Malmo are 13/8. Rangers are 6/1 to win on away goals. The Scottish side are 250/1 to win this year’s Champions League. McCoist is 10/3 to not be Rangers manager come the last day of the season and is 16/1 to be the next SPL manager to leave their job.

“McCoist is under pressure already following a couple of uninspiring performances and he will surely be feeling the heat should Rangers go out of the Champions League against Malmo,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
