Dundee midfielder Paul McGowan has admitted that Saturday’s five-goal first half at Motherwell will be a hard act to follow.
But the former St Mirren man revealed that a truly stunning 45-minute display of attacking football didn’t completely satisfy the Dark Blues’ perfectionist manager, Paul Hartley.
“Coming off at half-time 5-1 up doesn’t happen very often,” McGowan said. “I’d like to think it could get better but it will probably be hard to top.
“Listen, there’s always room for improvement. The gaffer will say that.
“He came in at half-time and had a wee bit of a go at us in the dressing room. That’s the way he is.
“It was for the goal they scored. He was talking about winning the second ball.
“Nobody said anything back. I liked it. It kept the boys on their toes.”
