McBookie Suspend Market On Next Ton Manager

Scottish bookmaker McBookie has suspended betting on who will be the next Morton manager after a tip off that Douglas Rae had already drawn up a short list.

When I asked about the betting Paul Petrie - the man behind McBookie - told me of his decision to suspend the market, he said: "We have actually suspended betting on the market after we found out from a source that a short list had been drawn up. We also took a fair few bets on certain individuals that would back that up. Obviously this may be speculation but in these markets someone always knows more than the bookies so we have stopped betting to see what happens over the next few days. If nothing happens then we may put it back up."

Prior to the book being closed the latest odds offered by McBookie were:

9/4 - Allan Moore (pictured: in his days as a Morton player)
3/1 - Jim Duffy
5/1 - Jimmy Calderwood
6/1 - John Robertson

6/1 - James Grady
