Neil McCann came out fighting after Dundee’s fifth straight Premiership loss, saying: “I don’t chuck it.”
The Dens Park boss, whose team are still rooted to the bottom of the table without a point after being defeated 4-0 at Ibrox, confirmed that the club will appeal Kenny Miller’s red card in the contest.
And his message was the same after the game as it was before it.
He said: “I don’t mind pressure. I will take the heat.
“I don’t chuck it, the players don’t chuck it. We are playing with a lack of confidence just now but there are sparkles within games which gives me encouragement they are good enough to do it.
“They just need a wee bit more self-belief.”
