"If I've ever got a problem and I need to work on something or if I need a solution for something then I can go and ask him. I've been grateful for that and have enjoyed immensely working with him over the past year. I just hope he's part of things at United for a while because it wouldn't surprise me if a few big clubs were watching. His track record is second to none.
"We're doing pretty well at the moment [United are up to fourth in the SPL with 19 points from ten games] but won't get carried away with ourselves. There's a long, hard season ahead of us but people can see we're on the right track. There's still so much hard work to be done. I know that, the manager knows that and so do the rest of the players at Tannadice. If we take our foot off the pedal for one second then it won't take long to shoot down that league. So we aim to stay strong, stay fit and keep performing to the best of our ability."
