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."
