Chris Wilder already looking at managerial vacancies but will have to return pay-off to Sheff Utd if he gets new job

CHRIS WILDER wants to get back quickly into management – but it will cut his Sheffield United pay-off when he does.

Wilder is out of work for the first time in years and already looking around for potential vacancies.

However, as part of his settlement after departing the Blades a week ago, he will continue to be paid by Bramall Lane chiefs for six months.

If Wilder takes another job in that time, it means United will pay him less although he would try hard to find a way around that.

Wilder’s exit was bizarre. He was even close to taking charge at Leicester last Sunday as his settlement package was not finalised.

Club bosses only let him leave late on the Saturday night after he agreed to a farewell statement they could release.

Caretaker manager Paul Heckingbottom did not even travel with the squad until it was settled.

And Sheffield United were a sorry state as they were thrashed 5-0 at Leicester in Heckingbottom’s first game in charge.

Wilder was axed by bottom side Sheffield United after a series of bust ups with owner Prince Abdullah.

But he is not likely to be short of offers after taking the Blades from League One to the Premier League.

Wilder is currently the favourite to be the next Celtic manager and the chance to challenge Steven Gerrard’s Rangers for supremacy in Scotland could be hard to turn down.
