Jackie McNamara named as new Dundee United manager

Dundee United have named Partick Thistle boss Jackie McNamara as their new manager
"It's a great opportunity. It was a big decision to leave Partick Thistle, but I feel it's one that's right for me," said McNamara.

"We've taken a risk, but we feel it's the right thing to do. I'm looking forward to the challenge.

"This is an established Scottish Premier League club with a fantastic playing squad, infrastructure and youth set-up and I cannot wait to start working with the players.

"When I spoke to the board, we shared the same vision and belief with regards to how Dundee United should progress.

"This club has very strong foundations with the majority of the first-team squad under contract beyond this summer and a very strong youth structure in place."

McNamara, 39, has guided Thistle to second place in the Scottish First Division after only being in the job for less than two years.

He took over from Ian McCall in April 2011 and was given a one-year rolling contract with the Jags a month later, with former Celtic team-mate Simon Donnelly assisting him.

His role at Firhill was his first as a manager having finished his playing days in Glasgow's west end after a lengthy career with Dunfermline, Celtic, Wolves, Aberdeen and Falkirk.

“I think it's one of the hardest decisions of my career, saying cheerio to the boys and finding out yesterday”
Good luck with this mate!
