As big a blow as Sunday’s late, late defeat to Celtic was, Dundee players and fans have to do their best to make sure their glass is half-full.
Rangers’ 2-0 defeat in their Scottish Cup quarter-final replay against Aberdeen at Ibrox on Tuesday night all but guaranteed there will be no silverware for Steven Gerrard’s side this season.
The climax to the season is fast approaching with both clubs in Dundee playing for incredibly-high stakes.
When you’re discussing Brendan Rodgers and Neil Lennon the phrase that sums it all up is – timing is everything.
I think Dundee fans should look towards the boardroom and give a grateful nod in recognition of the club’s recruitment drive.
Going out of the Scottish Cup isn’t the biggest drama for Dundee in itself.
The most important thing for Dundee this season is obviously staying in the Premiership.
It’s no surprise to me that Jim McIntyre and Robbie Neilson are targeting players who they have worked with before.
We find ourselves in a new year and I want to wish everyone a good one.
With Dundee United’s takeover getting confirmed on Wednesday, that’s both the city clubs now owned by people with no long-standing connection with them.
