Typically when a coach's team is at the bottom of the table the rumor going around is one of him being fired not that another team is interested in him. However, the reverse is true for Owen Coyle. The rumor that was making its way around social media last night was that Celtic FC have asked and been granted permission to talk with Coyle. However, it was just that - a rumor. Dynamo Theory reach out to the Dynamo who said that there has been no contact from Celtic.

While it could have been possible that another team was interested in the coach it seems an odd move for the famed Scottish club. They currently sit at the top of the Ladbrokes Premiership Table (Scottish Premier League). The club has won the championship of Scotland's top league 47 times.
Coyle has had a less than successful run in his time in Houston. The team missed the playoffs last season and are fairing even worse this season. Houston currently sit at the bottom of the Western Conference and have amassed just eight points in ten games.
