Candidates set to line up
Former Dundee United player Gary Bollan described the upcoming vacancy at Tannadice as "a very attractive job".
The Tangerines confirmed yesterday that current boss Peter Houston is to leave the club at the end of the season following him opting against extending his existing contract.
And Bollan is expected to be one of a number of candidates after being without a post since leaving Livingston last year.
"It's a fantastic club. It's one of the biggest jobs in Scotland," he told BBC Radio Scotland. "Having been there for six years of my career, I know the type of club it is and I think it's an attractive job to anybody.
"I think there'll be no shortage of people applying for the job and putting their name forward because it is such an attractive job," Bollan continued. "The list can be endless of the amount of applicants that'll be putting their names forward for it."
