Next Northern Ireland Manager Betting

Jim Magilton has emerged as the favourite

Nigel Worthington will step down as manager of Northern Ireland following their final Euro 2012 qualifier against Italy on Tuesday evening.

The former Norwich and Leicester City manager’s four-year reign has had its fair share of ups and downs. A home draw against Italy and an away win over Slovenia will go down as highlights but an away draw against the Faroe Islands typified the inconsistencies in the side.

“I feel it is only right to give the Association and players the opportunity and time to move forward and that is why I have decided that Tuesday night's game will be my last in charge,” said Worthington in a statement.

“It has been a pleasure and I would like to wish the Irish Football Association all the best for the future; and to the supporters who have been fantastic throughout.”

Former Northern Ireland midfielder Jim Magilton has since emerged as the favourite in the next Northern Ireland manager betting market. Stan James offer odds of 3/1 that he succeeds Worthington.

Current Shamrock Rovers boss Michael O’Neill is also proving popular in the betting and can be backed at odds of 8/1 with Willaim Hill, while former Crystal Palace, Charlton Athletic and Hull City manager Iain Dowie is quoted at 9/1 with Paddy Power.
