Southampton next manager odds: The favourites to replace sacked boss Mauricio Pellegrino

Pellegrino sacked: Southampton target Marco Silva as next manager Exclusive: Mark Hughes the favourite for Southampton job after Mauricio Pellegrino is sacked

Former Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, veteran Martin O'Neill and Koeman, who was named the new Netherlands coach last month, were among the outsiders for the job listed by bookmakers Skybet.

It has left Southampton just one point and one place above the Premier League drop zone with eight games of the season remaining and there's every chance that they could slip out of the top flight if results don't dramatically improve.

Southampton should appoint Mark Hughes as their new manager until the end of the season, says Robbie Savage.

A run of only one win in 17 Premier League matches has left the Saints sitting just one point and one place above the relegation zone.

Assistant manager Carlos Compagnucci and assistant first-team coach Xavier Tamarit have also parted company with the south coast club.

United Kingdom officials told that Aramco IPO unlikely until 2019
President Donald Trump tweeted Saudi officials in November and advised them to list Aramco on the New York Stock Exchange. The members of King Abdullah's family are seen as rivals of Crown Prince Mohammed and his father, King Salman.

The 46-year-old arrived at St Mary's as the replacement for Claude Puel, who was sacked despite guiding Southampton to an eighth-placed finish and the League Cup final.

"I think that was probably something that, looking back with hindsight, the club would probably regret, trying to keep him in the summer", said Le Tissier, who scored 209 goals for Southampton during his 16 years at the club.

Now, it's claimed that Southampton are turning their attention to Celtic boss Rodgers, and may hope to lure him back to the Premier League after almost two years in Scotland.

Southampton have won only once in their last 17 EPL outings, though the team have qualified for the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.

"There are all sorts of managers mentioned; Mark Hughes has a lot of Premier League experience and I think that will count in his favour".
