A former Dundee United boss has dropped her claims for unfair dismissal and age discrimination at an employment tribunal after agreeing a settlement with the club.

Priti Trivedi, ex-head of football operations, was made redundant in August last year and initially claimed she had been replaced with a younger employee.

She claimed there was no genuine reason to make her redundant and that her replacement went on carry out virtually identical duties as the football side’s new head of football administration ad legal affairs.

Had she been successful, her claim was said to amount to a five-figure sum, based on months of lost wages.

However, papers from the tribunal show that she has now withdrawn her case and Ms Trivedi confirmed the claims had reached a "suitable conclusion".

She said: "I am satisfied with the outcome and I would like to thank my legal team for their diligence and expertise in this matter.

"I feel fortunate having worked for Dundee United Football Club for 17 years in total and while I did not accept the nature of my departure, the resultant settlement reflects a suitable outcome.

"I am pleased I can now put this testing period behind me and move on with my career in the game. I'd also like to take this opportunity to wish the club well for its return to the Premiership.”

Ms Trivedi took on the senior role at United in summer 2018.

Her redundancy came just over a year later, and just months after the Tannadice club was taken over by American-based businessman Mark Ogren in December 2018.

She initially claimed that the club did not follow a fair process in making her redundant and was also suing for breach of contract.

A spokesman for Dundee United said: "Dundee United Football Club can confirm that the Employment Tribunal action brought by Priti Trivedi has been settled amicably.

"The Directors of Dundee United Football Club thank Ms Trivedi for her hard work and service to the club and wish her well for the future.”

Ms Trivedi had previously worked with the club as company and club secretary from 1985 to 2000.

She returned in 2017, taking on the role of football operations manager before being promoted to the head of football operations shortly after.

She has also previously worked at Kilmarnock FC as general manager of the company and as finance manager for the Scottish Premier League.
