The Republic of Ireland have been on the lookout for a new manager after opting against renewing Stephen Kenny’s contract in November last year.

John O’Shea was placed in interim charge, with reports claiming that they’ve been hit with multiple setbacks from other candidates.

But Friday saw a significant drift, as Solskjær was previously available to back at odds of 80/1.

Steve Bruce is the second-favourite at 7/2 and O’Shea is priced at 6/1 to land the job on a permanent basis.
