  • Mccann Brands Defeat To Killie As 'unacceptable'

    Neil McCann has told his Dundee players that their performance last night was “unacceptable” after they threw away a 2-1 lead against 10-man Killmarnock to lose 3-2 last night.


    With just sixteen minutes left to play, the Dark Blues were ahead and looked good for the win with the man advantage but they surrendered the lead and eventually the points by allowing Killie to not only equalise by also grab the winner.

    "Only the players can explain why they're not doing their jobs properly," McCann said.

    "They've been told and they will be told repeatedly again that it's unacceptable.

    "We're 2-1 up and a man up, I've taken off a more attacking player for a defensive player, but for some unknown reason we can't manage that situation.

    "We've just got players running and I'm screaming at them from the touchline. We shouldn't lose that game."

    McCann was quick to point out that he felt Glen Kamara was fouled in the lead up to Kilmarnock’s winner but refused to blame the match official for Dundee throwing away the three points.

    "Glen Kamara is fouled right in front of us, Nick doesn't give it, and he waltzes through, the boy," McCann said.

    "I'm not happy with [the referee] not giving a free kick when Kamara was fouled. Other than that, both managers might have a few grumbles. [But] it wasn't the referee's faulty we lost the game."
