Former West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke is favourite for the Celtic job.

Clarke is now the frontrunner to be named Celtic's new boss after Manchester United legend Roy Keane pulled out of the race to succeed Neil Lennon.

Republic of Ireland assistant manager Keane was thought to be close to being handed the job but surprisingly asked the Scottish champions not to consider his candidacy.

Now Clarke, 50, is the bookies' favourite for the post.
