Don't Do It God,They Fight Over Him in Glasgow!

Don't Do It God,They Fight Over Him in Glasgow!

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope he stays put, he'll regret it if he doesn't, i'm not actually a fan of this club but have found myself looking out for results for the past season, i have great respect for coyle despite him trying to lure one of my teams players south of the border. As for the state of the spl, well, it can only get better hopefully be a few surprises next season. All the best to you's for next season. I predict a top 10 finish, or around about there

Oficial Response from BFC on website “Contrary to widespread speculation, Burnley Football Club has not received any official approach from Celtic for the services of manager Owen Coyle,.Nor will the club welcome any approaches for Coyle, who remains under contract at Turf Moor.”

I think it is incredibly harsh for anyone to say they would lose respect for Owen if he was to go to Celtic. The club you support as a child will always have a special place in your heart, It may well be that this would be a dream come true for Owen. I hope and believe that Owen will stay - he seems genuninely proud of what he is building and I think he will want to continue the job. If he is to go - I will wish him luck and be forever grateful for what he has done for Burnley Football Club.

All those journos have got to convince their editors they are worth their expense accounts, which used to be bigger than the ones that we are complaining about for MPs. Their salaries are sometimes bigger than MPs' salaries too. And they will all now want an excuse to visit Burnley too. So we'll hear more stories. But if OC does go, I will have to contact all the people who I have recently told that he comes across as a truly committed, honest and decent man, and say I was wrong to conclude from this that he'd stand by Burnley until he had shown he could manage a team successfully over a few years. I think Coyle should talk with anyone who shows an interest in him, but I think he will say the time's not right for him.

Sorry Dale, if he takes this job he will be just like all the other sods who jump ship and stab you in the back! I cant believe he would do that to Burnley FC just to manage a side he supported as a child. Would he join Inverness CT had he been born there and supported them all his life? Would he hell and if he moved to Celtic he would be deluded to turn away the chance of managing a club in the TOP league in Europe! Let's hope he really isn't that shallow
