Dundee finally managed to end their awful run of ten defeats in a row when the dark blues won 1-0 against livingston at the tony macaroni arena this afternoon.
Relegation was confirmed after last week's defeat at home to Hamilton, which meant that today's match was the first of two meaningless ties before the end of the 2018/19 campaign.
Kenny Miller netted the only goal of the game after being set up by fellow striker Andrew Nelson.
Miller's goal put him into the club's history books as our oldest ever goalscorer, at 39 years and 121 days, replacing Gordon Smith, who had previously held the record after he scored for the Dark Blues in a 2-0 win away to Falkirk in the penultimate match of the 1962-63 season. Smith was 38 at the time, but was just a few days away from his 39th birthday.
After the match, McIntyre praised Miller's goal, which ended the club's longest run of league defeats dating back to 1898-99.
"It was a scrappy game but it was a brilliant ball and finish from Kenny Miller, one bit of real quality," McIntyre told BBC Sportsound.
"It was all about trying to win and restore a wee bit of pride. We know that won't make everyone happy but it stops the horrible run we were on."
