Neil Lennon: Celtic boss is the new favourite to replace David Moyes at Everton

A rush of money on Celtic boss Lennon has seen him cut from 12/1 to odds-on favourite with Sky Bet to replace Manchester United-bound David Moyes at Goodison Park.

And Hoops striker Samaras believes successive SPL titles and a run to the last 16 in this season's UEFA Champions League were always likely to attract interest in the manager.

He said: "I haven't heard anything but all I can say is that when you are playing at a high level like the Champions League and doing well then for sure people will come and watch the players or the manager or whoever is part of the team.

"That is normal. When you are doing well, people will come and watch you. But I don't know what he is thinking or what he wants to do."

Everton chairman Bill Kenwright has promised to listen to supporters before appointing Moyes' successor.

He said: "Everton supporters are no fools. I will be looking to those supporters, not to get individual names, to get the guidance that true football fans can give to its chairman and its football club.

"You can't individually poll each of them, but it is important that they get the right man."

Roberto Martinez, who is now 7/2 for the job, was the bookmakers' early favourite, but the Wigan manager says he will not listen to any approaches until the season ends with the Latics targeting FA Cup glory and battling to avoid relegation from the Premier League.

And another potential candidate, Michael Laudrup, is not interested in leaving Swansea.

The Dane's agent Bayram Tutumlu said: "He will not be changing clubs. He likes Swansea and is very settled."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
