Dugout not for Dundee United boss Levein

Dundee United boss Craig Levein will not be swapping a place in the stand for the dugout.

Dundee United boss Craig Levein will not be swapping a place in the stand for the dugout.

Despite guiding his side to their first win of the season from the dugout in the victory at Aberdeen, it will not be a permanent arrangement.

He said: "I think it's better being in the stand but when your team is suffering from a lack of points I feel you have to be in there with the players rather than being distanced from them.

"I was out there for the warm-up, throwing the ball up for headers and doing anything I could to help.

"I intend to go back up into the stand for games in the future but right now we need everybody working together. I think I worked up a sweat on for about the first time in 20 years today!"
