"You heard Goodwillie’s comment last week," (he said he hoped Rangers would win the league) "I know what he meant, but it tells a story. But I like to think Dundee United will be as professional as they can be and put on a game."
"I don’t think he needed to say it, did he?" said Lennon. "I don’t think he needs to make that public.
"He has basically put that out there now and it is going to cast a lot of aspersions.
"Listen, I’m not going to cast aspersions about Dundee United. I’ve no doubts Peter Houston will take his team there to win the game. He’s too professional, but I think it was an ill-timed comment for Goodwillie to make at this stage of the season and I’m sure the kid will learn from that.”
Dundee Utd do have something to play for. They can still get 3rd place and European football. Hopefully they can see that if they beat Rangers on Tuesday and we beat Hearts on Wednesday, it’s in their own hands to beat Hearts next weekend and get 3rd place.
