Owen Coyle open to speaking to Scottish FA

Former Bolton boss Owen Coyle said he would be open to an approach from the Scottish FA about filling the managers post.
 
The position has been vacant since Craig Levein left the post after a disappointing start to the World Cup 2014 qualifying campaign.
 
Coyle is one of a number of candidates linked to the role, and speaking today at the Tesco Bank Football Challenge event in Glasgow, the once capped Republic of Ireland player said: "I would be open to listening to any job opportunities that came my way, I don't think I'm arrogant enough to say I don't want to do this or that."
 
Coyle, who was sacked last month by Bolton Wanderers, after three years at the club, holds the Scotland job in high regard saying: "There's no doubt it is a terrific job for anyone who's lucky enough to get it.
 
"If 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. 

"The squad are all in there mid twenties and some of them are younger, I believe they have two good qualifying campaigns in them."
 
The former St Johnstone player was in Glasgow to recognise the Tesco Bank Football Challenge's latest achievement, with the programme now reaching an astounding 50,000 children across Scotland. It is a four year programme enabling children between the age of six and eight to embark upon a healthy and active lifestyle through football coaching and development.
