Roberto Martinez is the subject of strong support at Coral and he is now 7/4 (from 5/1) to take over the Anfield job.
The highly respected Wigan boss has been touted as the ideal replacement at Liverpool, and was the immediate choice of the punters.
“After being summonsed before the boss in Boston this week, the writing was on the wall for Kenny, and no sooner had we released our betting on the replacement, the interest in Martinez started and we were forced to slash his price,” said Coral spokesman Gary Burton.
