Dundee boss Neil McCann expressed his delight after his side won last night’s tricky William Hill Scottish Cup replay over Inverness in the Highlands.
Scott Allan proved to be the match winner with the only goal of the game to take the Dark Blues through to the fifth round and a meeting with Motherwell.
As the tie took place, Celtic were linked with trying to snap up Dundee keeper Scott Bain who is on loan at Hibs as well as making an increased offer for defender Jack Hendry believed to be in the region of £1 million.
However, McCann insisted he was in the dark about the speculation as he had simply been focusing on the Inverness game.
One thing he was certain of though was that he is looking for even more from on-loan Celtic playmaker Allan.
McCann said: “I am delighted to be into the next round.
“The conditions here were awful tonight and the groundsman did really well.
“Inverness are a right good side with a lot of talented players and they possess a big threat.
“They would have looked to ask a lot of questions of a Premiership side and could we handle that. I am delighted that we did.
“It was a class finish from Scott. I am always saying to him in training to use his class, to use his culture and not lace it.
“It was a great finish. I want him to be more of a goal threat because it can’t always be Scott slipping the killer pass for others.
“If he becomes a goal threat he will draw more attention to him which will free up space.”
When asked about Bain, he said: “I can honestly say, I don’t know.
“If you ask me about Jack Hendry right now, I can’t give you any answers.
“I have been preparing for the game and I told them any speculation about transfer stuff I wasn’t interested as I was only looking to get through in the cup.”
