New Falkirk manager Ray McKinnon has revealed the deadline day madness at the Championship strugglers – and even had a Dundee defender offered to him with just minutes to go till the window slammed shut.
The former Dundee United boss was only in the door for a few hours after his shock switch from Greenock Morton.
McKinnon managed to seal a deal for Rangers striker Zak Rudden on loan but narrowly missed out on former Tannadice loanee Anthony Ralston.
He also revealed Dundee boss Neil McCann offered the services of former skipper Darren O’Dea as the clock ticked towards midnight.
McKinnon said: “We had Darren O’Dea getting punted to us at 10.30 at night by Neil McCann. I was in the house!
“We were trying to do a couple of things late at night. We were close, but we got Rudden, that was brilliant.
“It was so late, we were trying to settle with players at 10 at night. It was mad.”
Thirty-one-year-old O’Dea has been frozen out at Dens this season and is yet to make an appearance despite being fit.
