Money On Mcglynn To Be New Hearts Boss

John McGlynn has been backed by William Hill punters to take up the vacant manager’s role at Tynecastle.

The Raith Rovers boss is 7/1 to take the post but ex Lokomotiv Moscow boss Jose Couceiro is still the favourite for the Hearts hot seat at 11/10. 40% of bets on the market have been placed on McGlynn.

“McGlynn has done a solid job at Raith Rovers leading punters to believe that it could be time for a step up. He is somewhat of an outsider with Couceiro heading the market and ex players Paul Hartley and Stephen Pressley close to him. It is a case of watch this space,” said Hill’s spokesman Mark Young.

Next Hearts Manager: 11/10 J Couceiro, 5/1 S Pressley, 11/2 G Locke, 6/1 C Cameron, 6/1 P Hartley, 7/1 J McGlynn, 10/1 B Davies, 12/1 T Butcher, 14/1 J Jeffries, 16/1 J Robertson, 16/1 L Clark, 16/1 S McCall, 16/1 D Weir, 20/1 D Gvildys, 20/1 E Riabovas, 20/1 R Zutautas, 20/1 S Clarke, 25/1 J Calderwood, 25/1 D Adams, 33/1 A McCleish, 40/1 B Reid.
