Scott Brown announced his retirement from international football for the second time earlier this week and I think it is the right decision.
As the dust settles on Alex McLeish’s appointment as Scotland manager, I still can’t avoid thinking that the SFA took the lazy, easy option.
It has certainly been a grim few days from a Dundee perspective.
Now that the future home of Scottish football is coming down to a straight choice between Hampden and Murrayfield, I hope that we stay where we are.
Dundee fans desperate to see their team go on a cup run for the first time in ages will probably disagree with me but I don’t think Neil McCann will see the Scottish Cup as a priority.
The SFA aren’t covering themselves in glory with their hunt for a new Scotland manager at the moment.
The table might not show it yet but there’s no doubt in my mind that this Dundee team is in a better place than Paul Hartley’s 12 months ago.
Every club has to make the right decisions for themselves but I can’t help but think that Falkirk may live to regret pulling the plug on their youth academy.

It is amazing how quickly things can change in Scottish football.
I can understand why big clubs are being linked with Dundee’s Jack Hendry.
