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.

Who Will Be Next S P L Boss Out ?

Betting without Calderwood, but:
WHO’LL BE NEXT SPL BOSS TO LEAVE HIS CLUB?

WITH HIBS’ BOSS Colin Calderwood reportedly set to leave Hibs, William Hill have opened a book on who – excluding Calderwood – will be the next SPL manager to leave his club and have installed Jim Jefferies of Hearts, St Johnstone’s highly rated Derek McInnes and Kilmarnock’s Kenny Shiels as their 4/1 co-favourites. ‘Kenny has lost some of his best players and replaced them with some as yet unproven new ones, Derek is probably coveted by bigger clubs, while Jim needs results to match the strength of his squad if he’s not to come under pressure’ said Hill’s spokesman Graham Sharpe. ’However, this looks a very open market.

William Hill: The Odds (Without Colin Calderwood) for next SPL boss out:

4/1. Shiels
4/1. Jefferies
4/1. McInnes
9/2. Butcher
7/1. D. Lennon
10/1. Brown
12/1. McCall
16/1. N. Lennon
16/1. Houston
16/1. McCoist
20/1. McIntyre.
