Houston's Dundee Utd position in danger

Peter Houston is reportedly in danger of being sacked from his role as Dundee United manager according to recent reports.

It is believed that Arabs chairman Stephen Thompson is set to return to Scotland from a short trip to America to hold crisis talks with Houston who has the club sitting third bottom on the Scottish Premier League.

But it is the loss in Tuesday night's League Cup quarter-final against First Division club Falkirk which has grabbed the attention of the United chairman who is unhappy with the current position of the club and feels that this may be the straw that broke the camel's back.

The fact that Dundee lost the likes of David Goodwillie, Morgaro Gomis, Prince Buaben, Craig Conway and David Robertson in the off-season does not help the cause but nonetheless, Houston's position is set to go under review despite the Scotland assistant remaining positive and committed to the cause, which is evidenced by him temporarily stepping away from his national team duties to concentrate on club obligations.
