Cammy Kerr has backed Neil McCann to transform Dundee into a top-six team despite a sticky start to the season.
Four losses on the bounce have left the Dark Blues bottom of the Premiership after 12 games, but defender Kerr has backed the job McCann is doing.
The former Rangers midfielder has made clear his intentions to implement an attractive style of football at Dens Park since his permanent appointment in the summer.
And Kerr, a lifelong Dundee supporter, has lofty ambitions for the side.
“Looking at it as a Dundee fan, when the manager came in it was a breath of fresh air,” the 22-year-old said ahead of Saturday’s trip to face Hibernian.
“He not only came in and looked at the first team, you can see the younger boys have come in as well.
“He has come in and he’s looking for the club to have a different identity, which I think is spot on.
“It’s something that Dundee has been stuck in for years; a club that does OK and is up and down. But that’s not where we should be.
“We should be a club that’s pushing on and other people look at as a top-six team, at least.
“Dundee is easily one of the biggest clubs in Scotland in my eyes, and it’s about everybody pulling together on the same page and realising that there is something special that can happen.”
Despite their ambitions, Dundee remain in the relegation zone early in the season after picking up just two wins so far, but Kerr is not too concerned by their poor start.
He said: “Everyone in the dressing room believes we can turn it around sooner rather than later.
“All teams in this league bar Celtic have been on a tough run before, so it’s important that you don’t get too distracted by everything.
“If we stay on track with what we’re trying to do, I’m sure the results will come.”
