Closer to home John Kennedy has been installed as joint-second favourite by McBookie at 4/1 to replace Paul Heckingbottom.

It follows speculation over the last few days that Hibs are keen to chat to the Celtic assistant manager and try and prise him away from Neil Lennon.

Neil Warnock has also entered the bookies list following his departure from Cardiff City on Monday by mutual consent.

The experienced manager with an abundance of Championship and Premier League experience has spoken before of his ambition to manage one of Scotland's Capital sides.

While he is 7/1 to become the next Hearts boss, he is 16/1 to arrive at Easter Road.

Interestingly, the Daily Record understand that Hibs dismissed Felix Magath's CV. It was reported yesterday that he had submitted his application for the Tynecastle vacancy.

Jack Ross remains the odds-on favourite at 8/15 with Harry Kewell 4/1.
