  1. I remember reading in the Evening Telegraph Scott Bain saying he hadn't been approached by McCann regarding signing an extension to his contract (Which runs out next year). Judging by his statements when Hartley was manager, I don't think he was even prepared to speak about signing and would have been off at the end of the season. He seems to be enjoying his football again at Dens which is good for the club, but I am now wondering if he has since changed his mind and would discuss signing a new contract if he was approached by McCann? I know that Celtics manager was bigging him up in the papers, and said papers were saying that he could be a replacement for de Vries, but I have since read that Rodgers and Celtic are saying that de Vries as another year left on his contract after the end of the season and they aren't willing to let him go. Would Bain go to Celtic knowing that he would be third choice just for the money, or would he find another club that would make him their number 1 or stay with Dundee knowing that he will still be playing each week and a shot at a Scotland cap?
  2. “It is hard when you want to be in Scotland squads and you are not,” he admitted. “Personally, I don’t think my performances warranted a call-up. “So for me it is a case of now playing well so that I can’t be ignored. I would like to be banging on the door again. “I am still only 25 so there is time for me yet but it is always there in the back of my mind that I want to be involved. I feel I could be there and that I have the ability to be there. “It is a case of playing well enough that they can’t really ignore you. “The Scotland thing is always something that has been around for me since I have been here. I do want it to come again.” Bain hasn’t been involved in the Scotland set-up since last year when the keeper was on the bench for games against Czech Republic and Denmark but has since found himself out of the picture. Saturdays display was a return to form for the keeper. Dundee fans have come to expect these types of displays from Bain and with the club facing some tough matches after the international break, they will be hoping that form continues and the club can move up the league.
  3. “He’s had a scan and we’re just waiting on the specialist to look at him and get him a date for surgery,” said McCann. “I’m heartbroken for him. He was looking great in pre-season and we’d had good talks about taking himself forward, becoming a big player for the club.” Usually, injuries like this can see the player out of the game for up to a year but normally they be looking to return to action after six months. Meanwhile, Scott Bain admits that Neil McCann was right to cancel the team’s day off last Sunday after underperforming against Buckie Thistle on Saturday and had the full backing of the players. The keeper said: “It was the manager’s decision as he wasn’t happy with the performance but neither were any of the boys. “We still had the chance to win six, seven or 8-0 but their goalkeeper played really well and you have to give him credit. “It can be hard sometimes when you are so many leagues above a team. Maybe at the back of your mind, boys are thinking this is going to be easy. “We caused our own problems in the game and were a bit slack. We didn’t do things properly or professionally enough so the manager was quite right to bring us in and stamp his authority telling us it wasn’t acceptable. “It was not the standard that we have been all pre-season. We have done really well in the games and played some fantastic stuff at times so we need to keep that going no matter who we play. “I think on the whole we were a bit sloppy and we maybe showed a lack of respect which you cannot afford playing anyone and we have to put that right at Cowdenbeath.”
  4. Source: The Courier Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain admits he cannot afford to let his standards drop with Kyle Letheren itching to take his place between the sticks. Bain, who joined the Dark Blues during the summer from Alloa, knew when he came to Dens that he would have a tough job establishing himself as the club’s No.1. Letheren had been one of the Dundee stalwarts throughout the Championship-winning season, and made himself a hero with the club’s supporters thanks to a vital save during the victory on the last day of the season against Dumbarton that finally secured promotion. However, when the big Welshman injured his knee during the warm-up before a game at Motherwell back in October, Bain was given his chance and he has seized it with both hands. Letheren needed an operation to fix the injury and he has battled his way back to full fitness. However, the first-choice goalie jersey still belongs to Bain who has been in superb form for Paul Hartley’s side, pulling off a string of sensational saves in games and establishing himself as a commanding presence on the park. Despite that he admitted he is taking nothing for granted and has to maintain those high standards as he knows Letheren is waiting in the wings. Bain said: “Yes, of course. Kyle probably felt the same when he was playing. “It made him play better and it is making me do the same. “Obviously, I don’t want to let myself or the team down. I am just very happy right now. “I am delighted to be back full-time and playing every week. “It is a real bonus and I think I have played 18 games now. “I feel I have exceeded my own expectations, to be honest with how I have taken to this level. “I am very comfortable now and feel I am more than holding my own in this league.” Bain and Letheren are put through their paces on the training ground by coach Bobby Geddes. And Bain admitted his mentor has played an important part in his development. He said: “He has been a huge help to me. “We do a lot of work on the training field and watch footage from games to see what we can improve on and do well. “He has been great to me since I came to the club.” Meanwhile, Dundee’s game with Celtic, originally scheduled for the weekend of the League Cup final, has been rearranged for Wednesday, March 18, with a 7.45pm kick-off. To coincide with this development, Dundee have announced details of a special ticket deal which will see supporters able to purchase cut-price briefs for the Aberdeen game at Dens on March 23 when bought along with a ticket for the Celtic match. Fans buying a Celtic ticket for £25 will be able to get an Aberdeen one for £15. A concession for Celtic is £15 and if supporters buy an Aberdeen ticket at the same time, they will get that for £5. The offer is available until the March 18.
