The Dundee United manager hunt is nearing its end game, with Csaba Laszlo in line to be appointed in the next 24 hours.
Courier Sport understands that chairman Stephen Thompson will announce Ray McKinnon’s replacement either today or tomorrow.
United have certainly taken their time over the recruitment process, with the likes of John Hughes and Laszlo interviewed some time ago.
The fact that Laurie Ellis has won both his games as caretaker boss hasn’t changed his mind – or Thompson’s mind – that experience is needed for the job of getting the club back into the Premiership.
The first game in charge for the new man will be an Irn-Bru Cup clash against Crusaders at Tannadice on Saturday.
