Burnley Boss Says Scotland Should Stay

Burnley manager Owen Coyle has suggested that Jason Scotland would be better off staying at Swansea City
Scotland is going to be the subject of interest in many boardrooms up and down the country after taking his tally to 50 goals in midweek with his winning penalty against Plymouth.
Scotland's impressive tally took his league total for the season to 18 and he is in with a chance of the Championship golden boot just twelve months after grabbing the League One golden boot in the Swans league winning season.
But Burnley boss Coyle - who worked with Scotland at St Johnstone - believes that the best thing for Scotland is to remain with Swansea even if the team don't manage promotion this season.
Coyle said "The grass isn't always greener on the other side.
"Players should sometimes remember that Jason has been terrific for Swansea - but Swansea has also been terrific for Jason.
"I'm sure he realises that. He's in a fantastic football environment and in Roberto Martinez he is working for the manager who is getting the best out of him.
"Swansea are a fine team and Jason is clearly a big part of what they're doing there.
"The way Roberto plays the game clearly suits him because he hasn't stopped scoring goals.
"You see players leave clubs because they've done well but then don't get the same success elsewhere. I think Jason's with the right club and he should stay at Swansea."
