Rankin lauds leader

Rankin lauds leader

Midfielder John Rankin has paid tribute to Dundee United's skipper and leading goalscorer Jon Daly.

The Irishman netted a brace during the 3-0 victory against Dunfermline Athletic at the weekend to take his overall tally for the campaign to twenty.

"Throughout the season, no one has really been paying much attention to what Jon's been doing but, now he has 20 goals, everyone is sitting up and taking notice," Rankin explained to the Dundee Courier. "It is a great achievement, especially in a team that was supposedly struggling at the start of the season and it speaks volumes for him.

"When you look at us now, we are sitting in fourth position and we made the top six fairly comfortably," he continued. "Jon has been a huge part of that and he has led by example all season."

Dundee United are into the Scottish Premiership play-off final after Paul Dixon scored a late winner at Falkirk.

The hosts had moved in front following a 2-2 draw in the first game when James Craigen opened their account on eleven minutes.

But Simon Murray equalised with fourteen minutes remaining, and with extra-time appearing increasingly probable, left-back Dixon headed a dramatic second.

The Tangerines now play either Inverness Caledonian Thistle or Hamilton Academical
