The club said: "There will be a minute's applause prior to kick-off on Saturday in tribute to Frank Kopel who passed away last week."

Former Rangers and Scotland manager Walter Smith - who played with Kopel at United - was among the mourners at his funeral service on Tuesday.

Tannadice stalwarts Billy Kirkwood, Dave Narey, Hamish McAlpine, Davie Dodds, Paul Hegarty, John Reilly and Ray McKinnon were also among the attendees at the Old Parish Church in Kirriemuir.

Kopel lost his six-year battle with vascular dementia last week at the age of 59.

He made his debut in January 1972 and spent a decade at Tannadice, winning two Scottish League Cup winner's medals in 1979 and 1980.

He made over 400 appearances for the club before leaving in 1982.
