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

Former player welcomed aboard

Former Dundee United forward Darren Jackson has quit his career as an agent in order to join new manager Jackie McNamara at Tannadice.

The pair already know each other well having previously played together for Celtic and Scotland while also working alongside one another when Jackson was a part-time coach at Partick Thistle.

"Darren will start on Tuesday. He's just trying to sort some things out as he's leaving the agency business," McNamara told the Dundee Courier. "He's giving that up completely so he can concentrate full-time on the coaching side of things here.

"He's an ex-United player and has a good personality first and foremost so the lads will like him," he added. "It's a big commitment for him to give up what he's been doing to come with us. But he had a wee taste of it at Partick and he loved it."
