Keith Watson headed the visitors in front at Dens Park, before Jon Daly and Willo Flood added others during the final 20 minutes.

Houston said: "They were very professional today. Dundee worked very hard and were a spirited side but I don't think anyone could deny we deserved the victory."

The match, however, appeared to swing on a controversial decision when Dundee were denied a spot-kick after Brian McLean had handled the ball.

The hosts were also angry that United were later awarded a penalty after referee Willie Collum had played an advantage that ended with Daly failing to score following a foul by Gary Irvine on Stuart Armstrong.

Collum then blew his whistle giving Daly a second bite of the cherry to find the back of the net from 15 yards.

But Houston added: "When a player's wiped out in the penalty box it's a penalty, isn't it?

"Willie Collum sees it as a penalty I certainly see it as a penalty, because he wiped him out."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
