  • McPake Declares Interest In Dundee Job

    James McPake may have distanced himself earlier this week from the Dundee job but after taking the reins as interim manager today in the dark blues 3-2 home defeat to St mirren, the u18 coach has said he would love to take on the responsibility of the manager's job.


    "Of course I want it. I love this club," McPake said.

    "Am I ready? Who knows? When are you ever ready?”

    With Dundee now beginning the process of preparing for life in the Championship, McPake knows the club have to get it right and hit the ground running if they want to make a quick return to the top-flight.



    "We've got to get it right," he said.

    "We've been used to losing games and if you do that in the Championship you won't come back up. So that needs to flip.

    "We believe we belong in the Premiership. We can't go down there and feel sorry for ourselves as a club. The fans won't let us do that; they will back us."


    Regardless who takes over at the helm, it will be a massive summer for the club on and off the field.

      Dundee have been dealt a big blow with the news that first-choice centre-half James McPake will miss the next two weeks through injury.

      The former Hibs defender picked up a rib problem during Sunday’s draw at Dens with Ross County.
      Dark Blues boss Paul Hartley has now confirmed that 30-year-old McPake will sit out Saturday’s clash at home to Motherwell along with the game against current Premiership table-toppers Aberdeen on January 17.
      The manager said: “James will be out for the next two weeks.
      “It’s a blow because he’s been solid for us this season.
      “But it just seems to be the story of our season with so many injuries.
      “It’s nothing new so we’ll just roll our sleeves up and get on with it.â€
      Meanwhile, keeper Kyle Letheren could be back fit again within the next fortnight.
      The Welshman injured his thigh in the warm-up before the New Year’s Day derby at Tannadice.
      Hartley added: “Kyle will be out for another two weeks.
      “It’s his thigh so we just have to make sure he’s right when he gets back.â€
