RAGING Csaba Laszlo slammed his under-performing Dundee United side following the 3-2 flop against Queen of the South at Tannadice last night.

The Tayside boss was furious after the defeat and declared his players must take their share of the blame.

Livid Laszlo said:  “I am very angry and disappointed because we dominated the game for maybe 80 minutes, but lost three goals.

“You have to be clever and not handle the situation like we did at the first goal. At the second, there was no danger.

“After that, we came back and I was thinking it was possible to press them more at 2-2, but we made the same mistake at the third goal, with nobody there to block the ball.

“It is painful and it’s the angriest I have ever been since becoming manager here.

“I am suffering as a manager and sometimes players have to take the responsibility.”

United, with on-loan Celtic defender Anthony Ralston making his debut, were booed off at the end by their frustrated support.

Ironically, it was another Hoops kid on a temporary deal, Jim Thomson, who rifled in the winner in the 75th minute.

He had earlier scored along with Kyle Jacobs to give the visitors a two-goal advantage.

However, Laszlo’s men fought back to make it 2-2 with efforts from Mark Durnan and Scott McDonald before Thomson stunned them with his long-range winner.
