Transfer news LIVE as Rangers, Celtic, Hearts, Hibs, Aberdeen eye deals: Morelos’ latest, Euro giants shock Gilmour bid

Dis-United front

MARK OGREN is searching for his FIFTH Dundee United manager – less than four years since taking control of the club. Here’s the list so far.

ROBBIE NEILSON

Manager when Ogren bought the club in December 2018, having replaced Csaba Laszlo 15 months earlier.

Took United back to Premiership in curtailed Covid-19 season but jumped ship in shock move back to the Championship to join Hearts in June 2020.

MICKY MELLON

Vastly-experienced Scot whose football career had been exclusively south of the border as a player and boss.

Guided team to ninth in first season back in top flight but bailed out for former club Tranmere in May 2021 after just one campaign in charge.

TAM COURTS

United youth coach who had taken charge for two games when Mellon and his coaching staff were absent with Covid.

Despite some fan scepticism, he did a stunning job leading them to fourth place and into Europe.

Then he had a shock departure for Hungarian side Honved in June.

JACK ROSS

Targeted by rivals Dundee to replace Mark McGhee but rejected them and pitched up at Tannadice instead.

Had bided his time to take his next job after leaving Hibs in December but despite shocking AZ Alkmaar in his first game, he suffered a disastrous fivematch losing run and paid the price after losing a record 9-0 to Celtic.
