The former Firhill boss quit the club in January to become Arabs boss following the resignation of Peter Houston.

He was followed to Tayside by assistant and former Celtic team-mate Simon Donnelly.

A statement released by the Jags said: "Partick Thistle and Dundee United advise that a full and final settlement has been agreed in respect of financial claims arising from the resignations of Jackie McNamara and Simon Donnelly earlier this year."

McNamara's former Partick captain Alan Archibald took over the Maryhill reins following his exit and led the side to the Irn-Bru First Division title.

But a legal row followed over the payment of an £80,000 compensation clause and reports last month suggested McNamara had issued his former employers with a counter-claim worth £40,000 for bonus payments for his part in helping Thistle clinch a place in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

But the row has now been smoothed over and Thistle said they were glad to put it behind of them.

Their statement added: "All parties were keen to resolve the situation amicably, without the need for arbitration, and all are pleased that the matter is now closed."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
