Alexander made over 200 appearances for Cardiff City during his playing career and retired in 2018 after a second spell with Livingston. A statement reads: “Dundee United and Neil Alexander have agreed to a mutual termination of the Goalkeeping Coach’s contract.

“Neil spent three years at Tannadice and everyone at Dundee United wish him all the best for his future career.”

United qualified for the last 16 of the Premier Sports Cup this week with a 1-0 win over East Fife. Peter Pawlett scored the game’s only goal.
