GAVIN STRACHAN has been installed as the favourite for the vacant Dundee job.

The Celtic coach is 1/1 to become the successor to Mark McGhee following the club's relegation to the Championship.

His dad, Gordon, is set to become the Dark Blues' director of football following on from his advisory role.

And according to the next Dundee manager market on McBookie, Gavin is the favourite to take over the reins.

Kevin Thomson is second favourite on the list at 5/1, while Jack Ross is shortly behind at 6/1 alongside Darren O'Dea.

Paul Hartley is priced at 9s for a sensational return to Dens Park.

Prices for John Kennedy, Charlie Adam and Dave MacKay can also be found on the bookmakers site.
