BURNLEY FC new manager: latest speculation

WATFORD manager Malky Mackay is the bookies favourite to take the post at Burnley FC after his odds fell to 1/5.

Previous favourites Phil Brown, Paul Lambert and Sam Allardyce are now at 7/1, though it is now thought that Phil Brown will take the vacant post at local rivals Preston North End.

When asked on Monday night about the vacancy at Burnley, Mackay responded “I don’t think it is respectful for me to comment on other jobs. I am the manager of this club right now.”
