United swept their Third Division opponents aside with skipper Jon Daly scoring in between a double from Johnny Russell at Tannadice.

"The result gives everyone a lift," McNamara said on Sky Sports 1. "I know we have got potential. The front three were very sharp today.

"We've got some good players here and hopefully we can kick on now. It's the first step today."

The result was never in doubt after Russell's opener just 15 seconds into the tie and United were sharper all over the pitch.

McNamara praised the Glasgow side for a strong performance after the break, until United's superior fitness eventually paid off with Russell's second goal and the dismissals of Rangers duo Kal Naismith and Ian Black in the last 11 minutes.

"Rangers were possibly the better team in the second half but we defended well," McNamara added.

"It was eight games without a clean sheet before today so that was a plus for us."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
