Lee McCulloch: Has had persistent injury

The 34-year-old has not played since January 5 after being troubled by the persistent injury.

Ahead of Saturday lunchtime's tie, McCoist told his club website: "I got a report from our physio Pip Yeates today and the good news is that Lee is making steady progress.

"I would be very hopeful that our captain would be involved in the weekend and it follows that Lee would be very keen to play.

"We will monitor him and we will be in a better position to make a judgement later in the week.

"It's safe to say that having the captain in our side at Tannadice would be great. Lee obviously has a lot of experience all over Europe and in the UK and he is a player we would love to have with us at the weekend."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
