No distractions for defender

No distractions for defender

Dundee United defender Sean Dillon insisted their disappointing weekend first-half display against Celtic had nothing to do with the forthcoming Scottish Cup semi-final meeting with Rangers.

The Tangerines twice conceded during the opening forty-five minutes on their way to a 2-0 defeat to the newly-crowned champions at Tannadice.

"We like to press teams and we like to pass the ball and keep it well," Dillon told the Dundee Courier. "And we didn't do that in the first half and Celtic did. That's probably why we were 2-0 down at half -time.

"But we did it in the second-half and obviously enjoyed the game a lot more than what we did before. I thought we were far better second half," he added. "It was disappointing not to win the game and to lose. But at the same time at least we got a reaction at half-time. For me there certainly hasn't been any talk about it the semi-final."
