Alex Rae (pctured above) was not a happy bunny yesterday after his star player had been transferred to Burnley FC for a package worth £500,000.
His outburst was quite derogatory and condescending about our club and the player's agent:
'It's always important for a club like us to generate revenue but in terms of the playing side it's a big loss,said Rae
'Last year he was the driving force for us and I think he's a fantastic talent who can go the whole way.'
'I was getting phone calls from bigger clubs than Burnley and it's disappointing that the agent doesn't even bother weighing up all the options,' continued the bitter Rae.
'I think it's a bit naive. I think the guy got a little star-struck and he's not doing his client any justice.
'I tried to explain that to Kevin's family but I think hands have already been shaken on the decision.'
Well one member of Kevin's family, his dad speaking to the Daily Record today has scoffed at the Dundee manager's whinging:
Ally McDonald had this to say about his son's transfer and the boy's agent, Charlie Duddy:
'Kevin is absolutely delighted with his move to Burnley and with the sound advice he's received from his agent throughout.
'The unfortunate comments from Dundee haven't taken the shine off a special day for the whole family.'
Well said that man and hang your head in shame Rae!
