David Moyes remains committed to the Everton cause despite an admission of interest from Celtic.
The former Hoops star has been tipped as a potential replacement for Gordon Strachan at Parkhead.
"There may well have been an inquiry from Celtic but that doesn't interest me," said Moyes. "I am not tempted to take any steps. At the moment I am the Everton manager. I am a really loyal person."
Following his side's FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea on Saturday, he added: "I am also really ambitious. I will make sure the chairman stays ambitious and the club remains ambitious. We can't stop.
"After this I will have a holiday and then try to bring in one or two new players."
It is only four years since Everton did manage to smash the glass ceiling that separates the top four from the rest.
Unfortunately, that campaign was distressingly brief. Since then, the established order has remained in tact, despite efforts by Tottenham and Aston Villa in particular to break it.
"The gap is there," reflected Moyes.
"People should be hoping someone breaks in because it would alter the whole dynamics of football.
"If it is going to keep being money, money, money, something is going to go wrong in the future."
