Cup preparations interrupted

Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara must attend an SFA disciplinary hearing just a couple of days before their Scottish Cup semi-final with Rangers.

McNamara will be at Hampden on Thursday 10th April to explain himself following the incident also involving St Johnstone counterpart Tommy Wright last week.

The pair were dismissed to the stands following altercations and McNamara now finds his cup preparations interrupted by the hearing.

"The SFA have been in touch and my hearing will be two days before the semi-final. You just deal with it," McNamara told the Dundee Courier. "There was frustration on the night but I spoke to Tommy in my office after the game and there were no problems.

"You get frustrated but Tommy's a nice guy and I get on great with him. We spoke away fine after the game. We are both under pressure everyone is under pressure to get results," he continued. "I was disappointed to get sent off on the night but more disappointed to lose the game the way we did."
