Boss hails youngster

Boss hails youngster

Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara has hailed defender Andrew Robertson's remarkable progress.

It follows the young full-back being named as Scotland's PFA Young Player of the Year last week - and that in his first season at the top level since his arrival from Queen's Park last summer. Robertson was previously rejected at a young age by Celtic for being too small.

"It's fantastic for Andy. He's handled everything so well from day one," McNamara told the Dundee Courier. "I think it will all probably sink in over
the summer for him when he gets a week`s rest!

"It's a great achievement to win the Young Player of the Year award, it's a great story," he continued. "For any young kid to take a second chance like he has it's magnificent. He's shown real determination to come back and make a career for himself."
