Find out the odds on Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner becoming Celtic manager

The German is considered a more likely contender than Gary Neville and Steve McClaren

Huddersfield Town head coach David Wagner has been installed as a 25/1 shot to be the next Celtic manager.

Former Everton and Manchester United chief David Moyes, an ex-Celtic player, is Skybet’s evens favourite.

Neil Lennon, previously in charge of Town’s Championship rivals Bolton Wanderers, is 3/1 and Malky Mackay 5/1.

But German Wagner has been making his mark at Town, and that’s reflected in the odds offered by Skybet.

Also at 25/1 is Dundee boss Paul Hartley, Roberto Di Matteo, former Celtic defender John Kennedy, Leeds United chief Steve Evans, Alan Stubbs and Owen Coyle.

Wagner’s odds are shorter than those of Nigel Pearson (33/1), Gary Neville (33/1), Roberto Martinez (40/1) and Steve McClaren (50/1).

Installed in November, ex-Borussia Dortmund II boss Wagner is seeking his 11th Town win at home to Birmingham City.

The imaginative appointment has brought Town publicity at a national level.

The full-throttle football favoured by the former USA international striker has appealed to the supporters.

And the confirmation of a number of new signings for next season has solidified the sense of optimism and momentum created by Town’s £179 season-card offer.
