Wilkie takes new role

Former Dundee United skipper Lee Wilkie is back in the game only a couple of months after retiring.

The 30-year-old has taken a role as a client manager for his former agent representing players' interests.

Wilkie was forced to quit in April after a succession of unsuccessful operations on persistent knee problems.

He originally joined United from local rivals Dundee four years ago and battled back from a number of injuries until having to finally give up the game.

An ex-Scotland international defender, Wilkie also had loan spells at Plymouth Argyle, Notts County, Falkirk and Ross County and completed more than 200 senior appearances during his career.

Charlie Duddy of Premier Sports Management told BBC Scotland : "Lee will identify clients and give them the benefit of his wide experience in the game.

"He will also liaise with players who we currently represent like Andy Webster, Paul Dixon and Scott Robertson.

"Lee represented both Dundee clubs and Scotland with distinction and we are delighted to have him on board," he continued.

"He has a huge reputation in the game among fellow professionals and is ideally suited to looking after their interests."
