Dundee midfielder Paul McGowan has already been on an American adventure and now he wants his teammates to sample life stateside.
The Dark Blues hope to be given the green light to face Celtic in the USA next year, with Boston and Philadelphia being touted as possible host cities for their audacious Premiership plan.
McGowan has been there and done it in the USA, ironically as a Hoops player in 2010, and has given his Dens colleagues an idea of what they can expect if the American dream comes true.
“I think it is a great opportunity for the boys,” said McGowan.
“I played in a few friendlies over there with Celtic.
“The facilities and everything that goes with it are incredible.
“It would be great for the club and the city and would get Scottish football on the map again.
“With it being against Celtic, their fans would turn up because they are supported all over the world.
“I hope it does happen because I think it would be a great addition to the Scottish game.
“I played at (American football side) Seattle Seahawks’ Stadium against the Sounders and at (baseball team) Boston Red Sox’s ground against Benfica.
“It was a great experience and I was only young at the time.
“We got to train at some of the NFL grounds, like the home of Philadephia Eagles, which was out of this world.
“We also played against (Major League Soccer side) Philadelphia Union and trained at their facility.
“So it would be good for us all, what with the club having American owners.
“Hopefully, it does happen.”
McGowan, meanwhile, produced a fine display in the middle of the park for Dundee as they drew 1-1 with St Johnstone at McDiarmid Park on Friday night.
The Dens men made a brilliant start, grabbing a great goal through Kane Hemmings after two and a half minutes, only for David Wotherspoon to grab the leveller for Saints.
It was yet another draw for the Dark Blues but they seemed happy enough.
McGowan said: “It was a terrific goal and we worked it well, especially with the pitch the way it was.
“We then lost a rubbish goal and it has been typical us.
“Even at 1-1 they (St Johnstone) didn’t look like scoring and I thought we were really comfy.
“I think we are one win away from where we need to be.
“We are not a million miles away.
“Over the last few weeks we have played well and we have a wee bit about us.
“We are not losing games.
“Top six is our aim and with the players we have that is do-able.”
