Grayson to make shock return to Leeds United? TSS August 31, 2014 Leeds United 68 Comments Odds on Simon Grayson returning as Leeds United manager have fallen sharply in the last 24 hours. Grayson was considered to be a rank outsider by bookies who were offering odds as high as 50/1 when betting on Hockaday’s successor began, but those odds have now been slashed to 4/1. Neil Redfearn is also considered a serious contender after guiding The Whites to victory against Bolton Wanderers yesterday with his odds now hovering around the 5/1 mark. Favourite for the job is former West Brom boss Steve Clarke, while early favourite Rolando Maran is still commanding odds of 3/1 and Oscar Garcia makes up the top five contenders at 4/1. As ever, there’s a few random names being touted by the bookies too, none more so than Alan Parkes who’s a 16/1 contender according to Sky Bet (I’d never heard of him, but apparently he’s a youth coach…?) UPDATE (16:46). Odds continue to fall on Simon Grayson with BetVictor (Evens), Sky Bet (6/4) and William Hill (9/4) all listing him as their new favourite.
