Former Bolton boss Coyle keen on Scotland job

Owen Coyle has revealed that he would be open to an offer from the Scottish Football Association (SFA) regarding the Scotland job.

The SFA are still on the hunt for a replacement for Craig Levein, who was sacked earlier this month, with former Bolton manager Coyle's name being thrown in the ring.

Coyle has had offers from English clubs since his Reebok Stadium departure six weeks ago but he has indicated that he would love the chance to lead his country.

"There is no doubt that the Scotland job is a terrific job for the right candidate," he said.

"If they (the SFA) felt that I was one of those candidates and they wanted to speak, then, of course, I'm quite happy to listen and see what people think - how they want to progress and what they think of yourself and what you can bring to that job.

"I've worked as hard as a manager as I did as a player and maximised everything I had. Whatever I enter into, I go in giving everything I've got.

"If people felt you were worth speaking to about their club or national job or whatever it is, then I would be flattered if that came to be."
