Micky Mellon Leaves Dundee United After Twelve Month In Charge
Former Clarets midfielder Micky Mellon is set to leave Dundee United after less than twelve months as manager. The 49-year-old took over last July, steering the Tayside club to ninth in the Scottish Premiership table upon their return to the top flight.
Dundee United also reached the Scottish Cup semi-finals after failing to make it out of the League Cup group stage. However the Tannadice outfit are now poised to start another managerial hunt. Mellon joined Dundee United after a compensation deal was agreed with Tranmere Rovers, allowing him to take over from Robbie Neilson.
The Scot led Tranmere Rovers to England’s Sky Bet League One with back-to-back promotions, although the club were relegated last season when the bottom two tiers were curtailed on a points-per-game average. He previously achieved promotion with Fleetwood Town and Shrewsbury Town after a playing career spent entirely in England.
