Spittal: Robertson is the proof that United will help me develop

BLAIR SPITTAL, the new Dundee United midfielder, last night revealed how Andrew Robertson's rapid ascent convinced him to join up at Tannadice.

Spittal put pen to paper on a three-year deal with Jackie McNamara's United amid strong interest from city rivals Dundee after a blistering past season with Queen's Park. The 18-year-old watched Robertson - who also arrived from Hampden -enjoy a wonder first season on Tayside which included winning a first Scotland cap.

"I made up my mind quickly as this is where I feel I can continue to evolve as a footballer," Spittal said. "Dundee United allow you to develop regardless of age."
