Former Bolton Wanderers striker John McGinlay is backing manager Owen Coyle to boost his squad by shopping in Scotland.

Coyle would not be averse to raiding the SPL and McGinlay believes Dundee United's David Goodwillie could be on his radar following the departure of Johan Elmander.

"Given Coyle's knowledge of football in Scotland, you do wonder if he might be inclined to pick up one or two of the younger talents in the SPL," McGinlay told the Daily Mail.

"Owen has an eye for a bargain and I am sure he has some deals up his sleeve for Bolton.

"David Goodwillie at Dundee United is an interesting player and so was Connor Sammon - I'm surprised Bolton didn't challenge Wigan a bit more when he left Kilmarnock in January."
