Former Dundee Boss Neil McCann has started to claw back into the good graces of Sky Sports by giving them an hour-long interview into what went wrong at Dundee.
McCann was given the sack after a run of shocking results, squad disharmony over his time was always lurking in the background and his general attitude towards other managers.
It’s safe to say Neil likes to be the opinionated pundit firing the shots than being fired at when it comes to football.
Celtic profited from one of Neil’s biggest mistakes at Dundee – falling out with Scott Bain and sending him off to Hibs only for the goalkeeper to end up at Celtic shortly after seen the Hoops gain a top number two when Dundee could have been doing with him.
During the interview, McCann tried to place a lot of the blame elsewhere when it came to his tenure and we can’t help but feel there was a veiled dig at the Celtic goalkeeper with his comment about players not being able to handle ‘it’.
On his squad rotation and moving players on McCann said:
“There were some players that I let go who I thought either couldn’t handle it or wanted to go elsewhere and play a different style of football.” McCann told Sky Sports.
There seems to be no love lost between the pair with Bain having a laugh at the expense of McCann when he was given the boot.
Bain has landed on his feet big time but there was a real tension between the two at Dens Park and a clash of personalities.
Scott Bain will be starting the Bet Fred League Cup Final on Sunday while McCann watches the game on the TV.
