Houston rejects Levein reunion

Peter Houston has dismissed as "speculation" reports linking him and Scotland manager Craig Levein with a move to Celtic.

Houston, who succeeded Levein as Dundee United manager, insists he has not discussed the prospect of a reunion with his mentor at Celtic. Despite having been appointed Scotland manager less than five months ago, Levein has been mentioned as a potential successor to Tony Mowbray at Celtic.

But his long-time lieutenant claims to know nothing of the link, which would include him as part of the 45-year-old's backroom team. Houston said: "I think what you've got is people putting two and two together, but I can honestly say this is something Craig and I have never talked about.

"I am 100 per cent focused on Dundee United and I don't want to make any comment on what is speculation."
