Dundee boss Neil McCann insists Randy Wolters has a future at Dens Park.
The Dutchman was quoted in a publication back in the Netherlands, saying that it was “frustrating” to be left out of the team and that it “hurts” that the manager isn’t considering him for games.
McCann, though, moved to reassure Wolters that he has not been frozen out.
The Dark Blues gaffer said: “Randy is still part of my plans and he will be involved.
“He was unlucky to get injured when he did and he fell out of the side but he has been doing well for the under-20s lately.
“He was on the bench the other night (against Celtic) and is back in the fold.
“I hope he can still come good for us.
“I signed him because he had attributes I felt would add to the squad.
“It probably hasn’t worked for him as he would have liked, and I would probably agree with that.
“But I want players to be frustrated when they’re not playing.
“I have spoken to the players and I know I won’t be everyone’s friend but that’s part of being a manager.
“Randy is firing again now and he will be in the squad this weekend.”
