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

McNamara hurt at United crash

Dundee United's new manager Jackie McNamara was left feeling hurt following a 6-2 thrashing on his return to former club Celtic.

The visitors struck at either end of the game through midfielder Stuart Armstrong and striker Johnny Russell - the only problem being that the league leaders scored six times in between. United skipper Jon Daly also saw a penalty saved by Fraser Forster with his side trailing only 2-1 in the first-half.

"It hurts, the scoreline hurts," McNamara told BBC Scotland. "We lost some poor goals. We need to defend better as a team. They have to stand up and be counted.

"There's wee things I'm not very happy about. We need to do it properly," he added. "We got the goal up and, at our most vulnerable, we conceded from a corner, which you can't do at any level. I think some of them lacked a bit of belief later on and just wanted it over."
