We have hardly had time to stop celebrating our fantastic victory at Wembley and our return to the top flight for the first time in 33 years when already the media are predicting we will be losing our manager.
He is the firm favourite to take over from Gordon Strachan who resigned last week after Celtic failed to win the SPL.Owen Coyle was born in Paisley and is a lifelong Celtic fan and being a devout Catholic supported the team as a child
Owen Coyle is God to Clarets fans and if he does take up this offer it will be like a kick in the teeth and it will hurt bigtime.
Why the hell would any manager in their right mind turn down the chance of managing a team playing in the top league in Europe and move to the micky mouse SPL with just two clubs boringly fighting it out every year? Sorry Owen if you take this, just because you supported Celtic as a child, you are deluded mate and will upset every Clarets fan on earth!
BBC Sport believe Celtic will conclude a deal for the Burnley manager by the end of the week and state that Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has already spoken to the Clarets hero.
Operations Director,Brendan Flood though is determined to keep Coyle at Turf Moor and said recently:
'I am 100% sure that Owen Coyle will lead Burnley in to their first season in the top flight in 33 years.'
Flood also confirmed there had been no official approach from the Buoys for Coyle, who still has two years of his current contract to run at Turf Moor.
Sky Sports News is now saying that Owen Coyle would like to be granted permission to talk to Celtic about the position so things are looking rather grim for Clarets fans at the moment.
Every Clarets fan will now be praying that Tony Mowbray or someone else will somehow become the favourite for the Celtic job again.
Slaven Bilic would also be interested in the Celtic job according to his agent and former Hoops defender, Rudi Vata.The ex-Everton and West Ham centre-back and current Croatia national team head coach is looking for a new challenge.
'Slaven is certainly available to talk to Celtic but we have not heard anything,' Vata told BBC Scotland.
If Coyle does go we will need compensation for the remainder of his contract but that will not prove prohibitive for a club like Celtic.
DONT DO IT OWEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
