Promotion everything for boss

Dundee United boss Ray McKinnon is understandably prepared to sacrifice their defence of the Irn-Bru Cup in order to return the club to the Scottish Premiership.

"Winning the cup last season was great but our No 1 priority has to be promotion," McKinnon told the Evening Telegraph. "The Premiership is where this club has to be and it's where the fans want us to be, we're aware of that."
