Charlie Adam reacts on Twitter to speculation McCann has nailed Dundee post
By Harry Sykes
Charlie Adam has taken to Twitter to express his approval to reports that his former Rangers teammate Neil McCann is to be appointed as the new Dundee manager.
The Scottish Sun claim Sky Sports pundit and former Rangers midfielder McCann has been handed the reins at the Scottish Premiership relegation strugglers for the remainder of the season.
It is said that McCann will be formally unveiled by Dundee as their interim manager at a media conference at Dens on Tuesday night.
This was subsequently corroborated by reports at rival media outlets, including Sky Sports Scotland.

Adam, 31, joined Rangers from Dundee at the age of 17 and spent six years at Ibrox before joining Blackpool in 2009.
He played in the same team as McCann for the Glasgow giants and will know the 42-year-old former midfielder well from that time.
Adam, who has made 26 Scotland appearances, also spent a year at Liverpool before joining Stoke in 2012 and has subsequently been a mainstay at the Britannia Stadium.
McCann has never held a managerial position before but he has completed all his coaching badges and was working as the assistant manager at Dunfermline before landing the Sky pundit’s role full-time in 2015.
Dundee have plummeted into 11th, the relegation play-off place, after a run of seven consecutive defeats.
The struggling Scottish Premiership outfit have accumulated just 30 points from 33 league fixtures and are two points adrift of ninth-placed Hamilton and Motherwell in 10th.
In other Rangers news, one of the club’s midfielders has agreed the terms of a mammoth deal.
