While Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara felt his side were denied three points after Jon Daly's second-half effort was adjudged not to have crossed the line, Butcher believed the right decision was made and was happy with his team's display.

"Ryan Esson is adamant that it was not a goal," he said.

"I think both teams didn't do enough in the final third, but it was still a great game with good passing and movement from both teams."

Inverness dropped a place to third in the SPL table as a consequence of the stalemate and Motherwell's victory over Celtic.

But Butcher said: "If you look at the other results tonight then it's a good point for us. I'm very pleased with the effort the boys put in."

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
