Dundee boss Alex Rae knows he faces a fight to keep 19 year-old whizkid Kevin McDonald.

Liverpool and Everton are among Premiership clubs following the youngster and Rae said: "I don't think it's in Kevin's interests to sit in the reserves somewhere, having already played at a good level.

"I was nearly 21 when I went to England and there's no doubt that another year of experience at Falkirk helped me cope with it much better."
