NEIL MCCANN has stated that he intends to take responsibility for decisions that the Dundee manager took leading to a 4-1 humbling to bottom club, Ross County.
The 43-year-old saw his side convincingly defeated by Ross County in a manic second-half which saw 5 goals. Although, McCann wasn’t ready to blame his players for the manner of their defeat.
“I’m not just going to throw the boys under the bus.
“I made mistakes today as well and I will take responsibility for some of the mistakes that I made.
“Together we will certainly have to look at that and see ourselves how bad that was, because that’s not good enough.
“I can only apologise to the fans because that doesn’t sit well with me and I know it doesn’t sit well with them and I’m pretty sure it doesn’t sit well with the players.”
The Staggies were 13 games without a victory going into the clash; however, McCann blamed his side’s shortcomings on their lack of positivity in their own play.
“I think the second goal was indicative of our play today in terms of taking negative passes, not looking purposeful when we had and not being positive enough when we had it.
“We put ourselves under pressure and lost a sloppy goal and it had a bit of an effect on us.”
