Houston proud of nominated trio

Houston proud of nominated trio

Peter Houston described it as a "huge achievement" following three of his players being shortlisted for PFA Awards.

Skipper and leading scorer Jon Daly has been nominated for the main player of the year category alongside Charlie Mulgrew (Celtic), Steven Davis (Rangers) and Dean Shiels (Kilmarnock), while both Johnny Russell and Gary Mackay-Steven are in the final four names in the young player section with Kenny McLean (St Mirren) and James Forrest (Celtic).

"It is a huge achievement for the lads to get nominated," Houston told the Dundee Courier. "Whether they win it or not it is a great thing to be recognised by the guys whom you have been playing against all season.

"It is brilliant for the lads involved and also for Dundee United because to have three players up for awards is some feat, especially in a season of transition like this one," he added. "I spoke to the lads about it and told them they should be proud that players at other clubs are speaking about them in their dressing-rooms. I'm thrilled for the three of them."
