Millwall are currently without a manager - they sacked their now-former head coach, Gary Rowett, earlier in October. Following his departure, a host of highly acclaimed figures who are in the running for the vacant post.

There are some very well-established names in the list - including coaches who have managed clubs such as Crystal Palace, Birmingham City and Rangers in the past. Millwall currently find themselves in 18th place in the Championship - they are, however, eight points above the drop zone. There is much to be done at the New Den - who would you like to see take the reins?

Who is the betting favourite to be the new permanent Millwall manager?

Currently, former Queens Park Rangers and Rangers head coach Michael Beale is the betting favourite to take on the job - he has been given odds of 1/1 to be appointed as the new manager of Millwall.

Recently, Beale’s stock has taken a bit of a hit. While his stint at Rangers started brightly, it quickly began to spiral out of his control - multiple defeats against Celtic and a lacklustre 2023 summer transfer window did little to ameliorate the Light Blues’ problems.

Taking on the Millwall job could be an excellent move for all parties. Beale was relatively successful during his brief stint in the Championship with QPR - could he replicate this with the Lions?

Who else is in the running?

Of course, Beale isn’t the only name being mooted around. Also in the running is ex-Luton Town and Southampton boss Nathan Jones, with odds of 9/4 - like Beale, he has also proven that he can be successful in the Championship.

As well as Jones, Kevin Muscat, Neil Warnock, John Eustace and Adam Barrett are also in the running. Out of these four, Warnock stands out the most, having managed clubs such as Crystal Palace, Sheffield United and most recently Huddersfield Town.
