United hopeful over midfielder

Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara remains optimistic that weekend goalscorer John Rankin will sign a new deal at Tannadice.

The 30-year-old midfielder netted the winner in the 3-2 triumph over Kilmarnock but is out of contract at the end of the season.

"I am more positive," he continued. "Speaking to John, he is comfortable about the situation but obviously he has an important decision to make about his future."
