Big defender wants to leave on a high

Big defender wants to leave on a high

Garry Kenneth has vowed to send Dundee United into Europe before finally leaving the club in the summer.

The big defender is quitting Tannadice after seven years when his current deal expires at the end of the season. He made a timely return to action for the weekend draw with Hearts following his recent recovery from a troublesome hamstring injury.

However, the 24-year-old wants to ensure he leaves the club on a proper high and by securing them a prized European spot. That now appears more likely to be in the Europa League rather than a Champions League qualifying place, although Kenneth certainly wasn't yet giving up hope.

"We`ve still got nine points left to play for to try and catch up to Motherwell," Kenneth told the Dundee Courier. "I feel we have a massive chance. Yes, we probably have to go and win our last three games but why not?

"Motherwell have tough games left so it`s all still to play for between now and the end of the season. You have to be positive, like we have been all season, to pick up the wins you`re looking for," he continued. "So we are determined to take the game to Rangers, Celtic and Motherwell and give it absolutely everything. The good thing is that we now have nothing to lose. We will go out, enjoy our football and hopefully pick up three wins."
