Former Chelsea boss Andre Villas-Boas is now the bookies' favourite to succeed Kenny Dalglish as Liverpool manager.
Dalglish was sacked by the Reds after a disappointing Premier League season in which Liverpool finished eighth.
Villas-Boas, who has been out of work since he was dismissed by Chelsea in early March, has been installed as 6-4 favourite with Sky Bet.
Villas-Boas left the club with the Blues in fifth place in the Premier League, and caretaker boss Roberto di Matteo guided the Blues to the FA Cup - where they beat Liverpool in the final - and the Champions League final.
Wigan boss Roberto Martinez - who is reportedly a target of Aston Villa - is 4-1 and former Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez and Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers are both 7-1.
Former England coach Fabio Capello is 10-1 and Pep Guardiola - who has just left Barcelona - is 20-1.

what do you think?
Martinez the stand-out candidate by far. Good, young manager, tactically astute. Would love to see how he performs at a big club. No disrespect to Wigan.
Big club? Wont to to mid table Liverpool then surely......
Craig sour finbow boo
Position in the league, doesn't really show the size of a club. If you want to play that game , Liverpool are the biggest club in the prem, because they've won 5 champions league trophies, thus owning one outright. Any other clubs in English prem done that. No. you were saying... Craig ?
Klopp has done a great job at Dortmund, or Bielsa - Bielsa not only does he get his team's (Chile, Bilbao, etc) playing exciting, attacking football, he's also a bit mad in press conferences!
Mick McCarthy for Liverpool mediocre manager for now a mediocre club, mid table finish all the way YNWA
Yeah, mediocre club. How many mediocre clubs in the prem have their own champions league trophy ? Errrr , one.
