Since signing from Arsenal, midfielder Glen Kamara has been given plaudits by the fans during pre-season but in the team’s first competitive game of the 2017-18 season, it was the managers turn to heap the praise on him.
“Glen’s a class act, that’s why we brought him here,” said the manager.
“He’s obviously gone under the radar and people were wondering who he was, but he’s a player I saw and he was exactly the type I was looking for, for that position.
“We’ve probably got three guys in the squad who can play that position but he showed why we’ve got him at Dundee. He’s a real intelligent player.”
Dundee took the lead in the 83rd minute when Moussa netted for his first Dundee goal but the celebrations were short lived when Lewis Vaughan equalised just as the game headed into the final minute.
Dundee teams of yesteryear would’ve normally let their heads go down and accept their fate but this Dundee team showed they had some new character about them to go back up the field and slot home the winner thanks to a Jack Hendry header.
“I was really pleased that when we lost the goal we took the ball back, we weren’t feeling sorry for ourselves, and we wanted to get up the park and go for the winner. I was delighted with that aspect of the game.
“I think we showed a bit of character. We’ve been working hard on our mindset in pre-season. Even in training everything is geared towards winning.
We’ve got a wee thing going within the club, I’ll not go into too much detail, but you get rewarded if you win, even games in training.”
