Dundee’s new managerNeil McCann faced criticsm from fellow pundit Chris Sutton following a stint in the Sky studios over the weekend.
McCann — unveiled as interim Dundee boss last week — has five games to try and turn around the Dens Park side’s fortunes after seven defeats in a row saw them slip in the relegation play-off position.
Despite taking training toward the latter end of last week, McCann returned to Sky for this week’s Scottish Cup semi finals.
He had previously said he would take training with the Dark Blues before completing his commitments with Sky over the weekend.
However, former Celtic star and BT Sport pundit Sutton was unimpressed to see him on the TV.
He tweeted: “Have Dundee appointed a part time manager??”
After some fans took umbrage with his comments, Sutton took to Twitter again, saying: “Dundee fans have every right to expect a committed manager. You’re either in or out.”
The former striker went on to suggest McCann’s TV work could ultimately cost Dundee their “Prem status”.
Following his appointment last week, McCann told fans they were getting so much more than just a man “off the telly”.
Meanwhile, some fans pointed it out it is not unusual for football bosses to have media commitments, with one user called “Sneaks” responding “What about Klopp doing Monday night football?”
Others said it was “unfair” to suggest McCann is not committed to the Dark Blues.
