Dundee have three players who would grace any starting XI in the country.
How often has that football club been able to say that in recent history?
And if we get down to the crux of it, Scott Bain, Kane Hemmings and Greg Stewart wouldn’t be wearing dark blue were it not for the expert scouting skills of Paul Hartley.
He doesn’t rely on others to assess players. He’s a manager who can be seen come rain or shine at grounds across the country in any given week watching players.
In a world where players are imposed on first-team coaches across the globe, Paul does it his way.
And you know what? It works.
The trio of Bain, Hemmings and Stewart are gems. Having class like that, as well as Monday’s result, proves it’s a special time to be a Dundee fan.
