Mackay could replace Tony Pulis at Palace after the Welshman leaves Selhurst Park
Visit Ladbrokes for the next Palace manager odds
Crystal Palace are looking for a new permanent manager on the eve of the 2014/15 football season after Tony Pulis left the London club after apparently being frustrated by his inability to sign the right players.
As Martin Kelly arrived at Selhurst Park from Liverpool, Pulis held talks with club owner Steve Parrish and decided that he had no future with the Eagles despite the fact that he transformed the club’s fortunes last term.
The search is now on for a new Palace manager and Malky Mackay is an even money chance with bookmaker Ladbrokes and this could be a smart way of doubling your money.
The Scot has links with Iain Moody, the Palace head of player recruitment, with Mackay having brought him to Cardiff after the pair worked together at Watford, while the former Bluebirds manager has made no secret of his desire to manage in the Premier League again.
Neil Lennon is an 8/1 chance to return to football management after leaving Celtic last season, with Keith Millen also the same price to make the step up from being caretaker manager to take charge of the first team.
Palace will now have had four managers in the past two years, with Dougie Freedman leaving for Bolton Wanderers only to be replaced by Ian Holloway who saw Palace get off to a poor start last term.
Former West Brom coach Steve Clarke is a 16/1 chance to take charge, with Billy Davies and Chris Hughton both priced at 25/1 to become the next Crystal Palace manager.
