DUNDEE have made giant strides since the last time their city rivals made the shortest walk in world football.
Rangers lost more ground to Hearts in the race for the Scottish Championship crown as they could only draw 1-1 at part-time Alloa.
Anywhere else it would have seemed a quite extraordinary turn of events but on Saturday evening Dundee supporters seemed to outline in the unhappiest fashion what their club currently stands for.
John Brown has left his post as Dundee manager after they lost their place at the top of the Scottish Championship.
FALKIRK somehow kept their place at the summit, but had to rely on late goals elsewhere to preserve their position.
