Neil Lennon is "firm favourite" to replace Barry Robson as Aberdeen manager.

Bookmaker BetVictor make Lennon the leading candidate for the vacant Pittodrie post.

The former Celtic and Hibs manager is currently out of the dugout after a spell as Omonia Nicosia boss in Cyprus.

Now, though, Lennon has been linked with a return to management with growing speculation over the Ireland job and Aberdeen position.

Neil Warnock had emerged as an early contender for the post but he has fallen to 6/1, behind Lennon who is clear favourite at 4/6.

Alex Neil - formerly Hamilton and Stoke City manager - is in the running at 8/1 with Tony Docherty and Stephen Kenny at 12/1.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is an outsider for the job priced at 16/1 to head to Pittodrie.

BetVictor spokesperson Sam Boswell said: “Barry Robson’s dismissal as Aberdeen manager has seen an array of high-profile names linked to the vacancy, with Neil Lennon now the firm favourite for the role.

“The former Celtic boss has overtaken Neil Warnock in the betting at 4/6 after being as high as 10/1 with us when the market first opened.

“Warnock has meanwhile gone the other way from 1/2 to 6/1, with Alex Neil rounding off the top three at 8/1.”
