Scotland Under-21 Signs For United

Scotland Under-21 Signs For United

Last month Dundee United signed up captain Barry Robson on a new deal, which will keep him at Tannadice until 2011.

Now, youngsters David Robertson and Keith Watson have followed in Robson's footsteps by putting pen-to-paper on new deals with the club.

David Robertson's inclusion in Scotland's recent Under-21 trip to Germany along with his recent performances in United's 1st team will probably have caught the attention of other clubs, so Levein is keen to retain the youngsters services at the club.

Keith Watson isn't a 1st regular yet, but Levein has high hopes for the youngster, who featured in the 3-2 Scottish Cup win over Saint Mirren last month.

Watson's career was almost finished by a bad knee injury last year, but he appears to have made a full recover after surgery and has earned himself a new deal with Dundee United.

Although, Craig Levein has been singing the praises of David Robertson this week, after his inclusion in the recent Scotland Under-21 squad.

"I was delighted to see our young midfielder David Robertson win a cap for the Scotland Under-21 side against Germany last week," admitted Levein in his weekly column for the Daily Record.

"It's an honour for any player to pull on their country's jersey and nobody deserves its more than him, he's been a delight to work with."

"There is an intelligence about his play and movement that is difficult to coach, as he instinctively knows when to time his runs and support his forwards."

"There isn't an abundance of players who have that gift and it's what players such as Colin Cameron and Paul Hartley do brilliantly."

"I'm not about to claim that David should be judged in the same light as that kind of company, but he has a real knack of recognising the right time to make his runs."

"That ability to read the game is a valuable asset and if he continues to work hard, then I'm certain he has a bright future."

Dundee United slipped further behind in the title race after a 3-3 draw with Queen of the South at Tannadice.

But in the end they were grateful for a late equaliser from Simon Murray, his second goal of the contest, while Scott Fraser was also on target.

Striker Murray earned them an early lead following a powerful break but Stephen Dobbie and Joe Thomson replied either side of the interval - and Dom Thomas then added another.
