Celtic's Brendan Rodgers among favourites to take over England job after Roy Hodgson quits

Bookies have named Brendan Rodgers among the favourites to take over from England boss Roy Hodgson.

Hodgson quit the post after his side's loss to Iceland in the last 16 of the Euros.

Gareth Southgate, Alan Pardew, Gary Neville, Sam Allardyce, Arsene Wenger and Rafael Benitez have been named among the favourites to take over the job.

However, also among the potential contenders is new Celtic boss and ex-Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers.

There had been speculation the English FA held talks with Rodgers before the tournament.

However, his acceptance of the Parkhead job appeared to have ruled him out.

And yet Paddy Power are offering odds of 12/1 he could find himself in the dugout at Wembley for the World Cup qualifying campaign.
