Dee fans have called for manager Jim McIntyre to be sacked following the club’s relegation to Scotland’s second tier.
Dundee FC went down 1-0 at home to fellow-strugglers Hamilton after a late controversial penalty, to consign the team to 10 losses in a row and the Scottish Championship next season.
It remains to be seen whether the city will have any top flight teams next season with Dundee United still in with a chance of promotion through the play-offs after finishing second.
If they don’t, fans of both clubs can at least look forward to Dundee derbies for the first time in years.
Fans were left furious outside Dundee FC’s Dens Park on Saturday.
Michael Watt, 49, said they have “played like a team that’s going to get relegated all season”.
He said: “McIntyre is rotten,Neil McCann (previous manager) was rotten, John Nelms (club managing director) doesn’t know about football and that’s going to ruin this club unless there are changes.
“I don’t want Nelms to leave but I want him to appoint someone who knows what they are doing which he hasn’t done since Paul Hartley (who was sacked in April 2017) and he ran out of ideas as well.
“I don’t know who would want the job to be honest.
“We got what we deserved against Hamilton. We put a team out with one striker in the first half in a must-win game.
“It’s not good enough. It’s madness.”
Brothers Gordon and Dougie Addison also vented their frustration.
Gordon, 67, said: “I’m disgusted with their attitude and their football.
“They think they can just turn up and that’s it.
“The penalty was never a penalty but there was no fight. We never even had a shot on the goal.”
Dougie, 66, added: “They are playing for their livelihoods there.
“It didn’t look like they were interested half the time.
“We’ve had an awful lot of bad luck I think but you need to make your own luck don’t you?”
Saturday’s result means the club’s time in the top division comes to an end after five years.
Manager McIntyre has been quoted as blaming previous and current recruitment for his side’s relegation.
Ross Moir, 59, said: “It has been a really poor season with poor decisions.
“Everything we’ve done has been poor.
“We probably got what we deserved.
“It (the result on Saturday) was never going to make any difference I don’t think.
“I thought the performance was OK. Hamilton defended well and they took their penalty but Dundee couldn’t score.
“Next season we’ll need to change and rebuild definitely.”
Speaking to The Courier following the relegation-confirming loss at the weekend, Dundee fans vented their anger at the club, players, management and coaching staff.
