FORMER Dundee, Celtic and Scotland international keeper Rab Douglas has urged Dens fans not to push panic buttons despite the club being at the foot of the Premiership.
The Tayside outfit slumped to rock bottom after their unfortunate 2-0 loss against Hearts at Tynecastle last week.
“Let’s not forget though that Hearts are a good side, sitting third top of the table, and Dundee deserve a lot of credit for creating so many chances.
“On another day, one or two of them might have gone in instead of hitting the post or crossbar.
“I think Paul would be worried if his players weren’t carving out opportunities and I can honestly see them going to St Johnstone on Sunday and getting something from the game.”
But Campbell, now in charge at Arbroath, has handed the big goalie an unexpected return to the game ahead of tomorrow’s Cup-tie as on-loan Aberdeen keeper Robbie Mutch is unavailable.
A club statement read: “Rab brings a wealth of experience and knows the Arbroath management team very well and we hope he is given a very warm welcome to Gayfield.”
Arbroath are Douglas’ 10th senior club in a career spanning back to 1993. He began at Meadowbank Thistle and, as well as Celtic and Forfar, also starred for Dundee, Leicester City, Millwall, Wycombe Wanderers and Plymouth Argyle.
