  • Dundee Ace Glen Kamara Linked With Clubs North and South of the Border

    Dundee Manager Neil McCann has reluctantly admitted that there is interest from in the Dark Blues Midfielder Glen Kamara, with Rangers and Celtic both in the hunt for the Dundee Ace.

    When Glen Kamara walked through the doors of Dens Park last summer, he was a virtual unknown with the Dark Blue faithful and Scotland in general. However, he very quickly won over the supporters and has become a fans favourite due of his silky football skills on the park.

    The former Arsenal player went on to win 'The Players Player award' and the 'Andrew De Vries Player of the Year' last Sunday, at the annual DSA Player of the year awards last Sunday.

    His skills have not gone unnoticed by other clubs either, the Sun newspaper has reported that a number of clubs, including Celtic and Rangers are apparently after his signature. There also have been rumours that clubs South of the border are expected to table a bid for the 22 year old.

    Dundee are currently in talks over a new contract and Neil McCann has stated that he 'doesn't want him going anywhere' and that Dundee FC are doing everything they can to tie the in demand midfielder to a longer deal at Dens Park.

    The Dundee manager stated at a 'Fans Q&A' that Dundee FC won't accept anything but a 'serious cash offer for the midfielder and are in talks to extend his contract at Dens Park.

    “Glen hasn’t gone under the radar so we’re not ignorant to the fact he will attract attention.

    “So I am not in a position to say he won’t go because if a big bid comes in for him the club can use that to make itself better.

    “But I don’t want Glen to go anywhere and he won’t be going anywhere unless it’s right for this club.

    “It will need to be some serious cash. Glen won’t walk out of Dens Park unless this club gets a very big deal. We are currently speaking to Glen and have been for a wee bit now.

    “I met him the other week for breakfast before he went on holiday because he’s been called up to the Finnish squad again. That’s another feather in the club’s cap because he’s become a full international here at this club, not Arsenal. I’ve spoken to him and he’s loved his time here, so he’s not in any rush to get away and those talks will continue.”

      Kenny Miller came back to haunt his old club when he opened the scoring for his sixth goal in four games but Nathan Ralph was sent off on the 19th minute with our opponents slotting home the resulting free-kick.

      Rangers then had a goal ruled offside but from then on in, Dundee defended expertly to limit the Glasgow club to just one attempt on target in the second half.

      The result meant that Dundee moved off the bottom of the Premiership on goal difference for the first time since Motherwell defeated the Dark Blues on the 1st September at Dens Park.

      “I was delighted considering we were down to 10 men for so long,” beamed Jim McIntyre.
      “It is a difficult match when you go down to 10 men against one of the best sides in the country. But I thought the boys showed great resolve and good organisation. Having said that, I didn’t think Rangers cut us open that much. Jack (Hamilton) has made one or two saves.
      “We knew we would have to give up the wider areas and defend a lot of crosses but we were nice and narrow and the distances between our two fours were very good. So, the players deserve all the credit because it is not easy to handle that.”
      “It was an opportunity to get off the bottom of the league today.
      “We have had two or three of them and we haven’t managed to take them. So, I am really pleased that we have managed to do that but I will reiterate there is still so much hard work ahead.
      “There are a lot of tough games in December so it is just a case of one at a time.
      “The boys are in a happy place at the moment. There is a real spirit of togetherness there that you see on the training ground every day.”

      The defender was punished following his challenge on Daniel Candeias on the edge of the Dundee box which resulted in Rangers equalising after Kenny Miller had put the Dee ahead.

      Following the end of the match, Dundee manage Jim McIntyre said that he had spoken to the referee Alan Muir and he had confirmed that it was for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity.

      TV footage however shows that fellow defender Andrew Boyle was in close proximity and able to make a challenge if Ralph was unable to do so.

      The appeal will be heard by a disciplinary tribunal this Wednesday.

      Who was your man of the match against Rangers today?

      The ref against Rangers was Alan Muir. How did you rate his performance in this game?
    • By TheDarkBlues
      Dundee earn a great point today after going down to 10 men and keeping Rangers out.
      Kenny Miller opened the scoring in the 9th minute. However the Dee didn't stay in the lead long after Ralph brought down Daniel Candeias just outside the box and Andy Halliday scored from the free-kick.
      Kyle Lafferty had a goal chopped off for off-side and it was a big felt off for the Dark Blues.
      Dundee lasted the next 70 minutes and held out for a point that takes us above St Mirren in the league.
