  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. McCann also spoke about the impact Cammy Kerr has had and that: "Cammy Kerr's rise through the ranks at Dens Park will be a source of inspiration to all the club's young players." Tyrone also went on to report that: "There was a real feeling of positivity on the Dundee training ground this morning, they've certainly done some interesting business so far." In transfer news, Dundee have been linked with midfielder, Andy Halliday and Striker Michael O'Halloran from Rangers. The club have also been linked with Blackpool defender Tom Aldred. He's out of contract and Blackpool have offered him a new deal. Blackburn Rovers, Wigan and Bury are also interested.
  5. The new interim boss’s honeymoon period continued on Saturday at Kilmarnock when his team secured a vital 1-0 win to make it two victories in a row since he took over following last week’s 3-2 triumph on the road at Motherwell. Amazingly, the Killie game was also the first time Dundee had kept a clean sheet this year. That was in no small part due to keeper Scott Bain who made two outstanding saves near the end of the game to deny Killie a draw. The goalie looks like a man transformed since McCann came in but he is not alone with belief once again coursing through the veins of the players. The manager deserves enormous credit for restoring the confidence in squad who looked mentally shattered towards the end of Paul Hartley’s reign in charge. McCann also showed his bravery in his team selection on Saturday. It would have been understandable if he had simply stuck by the players who had beaten Motherwell but instead he shook things up by bringing in Faissal El Bakhtaoui and Cammy Kerr. Once again afterwards, McCann deflected questions about whether he would stay at the club beyond this season. However, if Dundee beat Ross County on Saturday, then the clamour for his appointment to be made a permanent one will become deafening.
