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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
