Dundee United expect to appoint Tranmere Rovers manager Micky Mellon as their new head coach on Monday.

The Scot, 48, is set to end his four-year Tranmere tenure to replace Robbie Neilson for United's top-flight return.

Was Tommy Wright not interviewed? After he didn't get the NI job I thought he would have been favourite for the United job.

Cheers, Bpp. I thought they would have gone for someone with a proven record in the Scottish Premiership. Maybe Tommy Wright wasn't interested of course.

The Micky Mellon appointment could turn out to be a good one
Any manager who does back to back promotions has to be doing something right

Micky Mellon is a very good manager. Very underrated. With the sort of squad Utd have he’ll do well. I could see them having a good season next year

Good move for him too

Tommy Wright's family never relocated to Scotland when he became Saints boss. So maybe the man is wanting to head home and spend some time away from football with the Mrs until the right job comes along? Makes sense to me.

Micky Mellon would be a fantastic appointment. Better fit than Wright who doesn’t like working under a director of football.
