Poor form costs Barry Smith Dundee job

Dundee have sacked their manager Barry Smith, left. The club are currently 15 points adrift at the bottom of the Scottish Premier League, having been promoted as a late addition to the top flight last summer when Rangers dropped out of the division due to their financial problems.

The Dark Blues have failed to record a single victory in their last 12 league matches. They travel to Celtic Park to face the league leaders on Sunday.
