Dundee United manager Micky Mellon has been linked with a return to Tranmere Rovers just 12 months after swapping them for Tannadice.

The Arabs finished ninth in the Scottish Premiership during Mellon’s first season in charge and Dundee United’s maiden campaign back in the top flight. A 0-0 draw with St Mirren on Sunday brought an end to the term but rumours have persisted on Mellon’s future for some time. Tranmere Rovers are the latest name to be brought up.

Doncaster Rovers were linked with a move to make Mellon their next manager but its former employers Tranmere now. Mellon spent four years at the club, winning two promotions in that time, and is still held in high regards. Keith Hill was sacked as Tranmere manager last week, the club to contest the League Two play-offs this week.

Dundee United players are in for a meeting this morning before heading off for their summer break, Mellon commenting on his future: “I don’t know if everyone wants rid of me or they think I’m really good. I’m enjoying the job here, I’ve said all along it’s difficult for me to comment on it as people will say he’s hiding something.

“Until I’m told something different I will continue to do what I’m doing.”

United finished their season with 10 men after Jamie Robson was sent off against St Mirren, Mellon adding: I would never want my players to hurt a player intentionally, I would never want them to be reckless, and that tackle was none of them. “The boy’s got back up and we’ve all got on with it, let the teams play 11 v 11 and fight for seventh place.”
