Dundee United Director Stands Down

Dundee United Director Stands Down

Former Dundee United Chairman Scott Carnegie has stepped down as the club's finance director, with immediate effect.

However, Carnegie claims his departure from the club is good news, because it means Dundee United are now financially secure enough for him move on to other things.

"I came into Tannadice some five years ago with the key goals of returning stability to Dundee United and to open the door for Eddie Thompson and others to invest in the club," said Scott Carnegie.

"Having seen Eddie take over, I was then invited by him to stay on, which has been a great honour and a privilege"

"Eddie's leadership has brought stability to the club, his personal investment has provided the club with a sound financial platform for the future and because of this, the outlook is extremely positive for the years ahead and it is now time for me to step down and concentrate on my own business interests."

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Tannadice and I would not hesitate to help Dundee United again in the future, if ever the need arose. I wish the club every success in the future."

Chairman Thompson has just pledged to make additional funds available for manager Craig Levein to bring several more new signings during the January transfer window - after the original budget was used on bringing Gomis, Dillon and Daly to the club.
