Former Dundee United manager Ray McKinnon has stated the “facts” in the wake of comments made by current Tangerines boss Csaba Laszlo.
Laszlo said earlier this week that the Tannadice club had been “unorganised” last season. He claimed signings had been made without medical checks being done, there were players on the books whom he didn’t know were fit to play or not and that some members of the squad had to travel 100 miles to attend training.
It is the first accusation on which McKinnon’s rebuttal centres.
Laszlo did not mention any names but his predecessor, who left United last October, has nevertheless decided to have his say.
Now the manager of Greenock Morton, McKinnon issued a statement to Courier Sport and other media outlets.
It read: “In light of reports in the press this week regarding the signing of players at Dundee United during my period as manager, I feel I have no option other than to clarify the following point.
“I deal in facts only and the fact is that in my time as manager every single player signed was put through a medical by the medical staff at Dundee United.
“I am disappointed that I have had to make this statement because, although things did not work out the way I would have wished, I left the club on good terms.
“I have moved on and my focus is on an exciting new challenge at Morton.”
