'If It's Football, It's Vital'

I'm proud of my boys - Houston

Peter Houston was proud of his Dundee United side despite their exit from Europe against AEK Athens on Thursday night.

The Arabs went out on aggregate following a 1-1 draw in Greece, with substitute Jon Daly on target, only to lose 2-1 in the tie overall.

"I'm proud of the players after that performance. We were fantastic in the second half and outplayed AEK. We'll learn from this," Houston told BBC Sport.

"Another five or 10 minutes and we would have won it," he continued. "Their players were desperate to hear the final whistle.

"I am so proud of the players and they will keep progressing because they are a young team."

Houston also had a special word of praise for the travelling Arabs at Olympiakos' Karaiskakis Stadium.

"The fans were fantastic," he added. "They cheered us from the first minute to the last."
