  • McIntyre Delighted With Ten-Man Dundee Performance

    Dundee manager Jim McIntyre could not hide his delight after sundays heroic display from his team who had to play 71 minutes with ten men in our 1-1 draw against rangers.

    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.”

      In a statement released by the club this afternoon, it read: 
      McIntyre leaves Dundee with just a 12.9% win record, the worst in our history. 

      Despite major player movement in the January transfer window, he was unable to turn around the fortunes of the club which resulted in our relegation to the Championship and he has now paid the price for failing to do so.

      The ex Ross County manager was never a popular choice to take over the reigns from Neil McCann but those with the final say within Den Park told us that the stats showed he was the right man for the job. However, those stats would ultimately prove to be corrupt.

      With many fans declaring an unwillingness to purchase a season ticket if he remained in charge and constant displeasure that he had not yet been relieved of his duties before his record ten-match defeat streak, this should be seen now as some what of a clean slate on the on-field side as the club prepare to adjust to life in the Championship.

      Our owners will now start the search for the 37th manager of Dundee who will no doubt be tasked with bouncing straight back up to the top-flight.

      As the game entered its final stages yesterday, chants of  "10 in a row, he's got to go" rang round the home support as the fans voiced their verdict on our worse ever manager who has now guided us to ten defeats on the trot to ensure our exit from the Premiership.

      Despite the fans unanimously letting the manager and owners know they have no faith in the current regime in the dugout, McIntyre said he is “determined” to lead the club out of the Championship next term.

      Goals either side of half time sealed the victory for St Johnstone but Dundee did have their chances to score, with Ethan Robson coming the closes when he fired over from only a few yards out.

      There is still six game left to play to save our Premiership status but with each passing week and performance, it’s all starting to look very bleak. McIntyre still believes though that he can lead his team to safety.

      Rangers easily overturn the Dark Blues and come out 4 - 0 winners.
      Ex Dee Kamara opened the scoring in the first 4th minute and Tavernier made it two goals in the 8th minute. Morelos made it 3 in the 23 minute and Defoe made it 4 after coming off from the bench in the 89th minute.
      Full-time: Rangers 4 - 0 Dundee
