Martin O'Neill: Favourite for the Re

Sky Bet make Martin O'Neill the odds-on favourite to replace Giovanni Trapattoni as Republic of Ireland boss following Giovanni Trapattoni's sacking.

The Italian boss has been relieved of his duties after a 1-0 loss in Austria all but ended Ireland's chances of qualifying for the World Cup in Brazil.

O'Neill was installed as the 5/6 favourite for the job on Wednesday morning with Trapattoni's exit widely anticipated and by the end of Wednesday those odds were 8/11.

Leeds boss Brian McDermott had been considered a lively outsider at 16/1 but has since been cut to just 6/1 while Mick McCarthy (10/1), Roy Keane (18/1) and Chris hughton (28/1) are other possible alternatives.

Sky Bet Football Trader Chris Spicer said: "O'Neill seems the obvious choice given his experience and availability and our punters tend to agree, with all the early money coming for him despite the short odds."
