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

Final focus from United

Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara revealed his team selection for the 3-1 defeat at champions Celtic was made with the forthcoming Scottish Cup final in mind.

Leading performers Nadir Ciftci, Andrew Robertson, Stuart Armstrong and Gary Mackay-Steven all reverted to the bench ahead of facing St Johnstone at the same venue next weekend .

"The focus is on next week, but I thought it was a professional performance," McNamara told BBC Sport. "I am not too disappointed. I thought we passed it well and were well organised.

"We left a few of the more forward players on the bench," he added. "You have seen the craft of Mackay-Steven and Armstrong when they came on."
