Stephen Frail has left his role as Dundee United assistant manager with the former Celtic coach on the hunt for a new club.

Frail joined Dundee United last season to form part of Micky Mellon’s backroom staff. But as Mellon heads back down south to manager former club Tranmere Rovers while youth coach Thomas Courts is promoted to head coach in Tayside, Frail – who has worked as a coach with Celtic and Hearts – departs.

Dundee United Sporting Director Tony Asghar said: “The work Stephen has carried out since joining last summer has been fantastic and I would like to take the opportunity to thank him for this.

“It has not been an easy season for anyone – with the COVID-19 pandemic ensuring that football clubs were much different places – however Stephen was key in ensuring that there was a good togetherness among staff and players throughout the season.

“With changes in the management of the first team, it was mutually agreed that Stephen would move on and I would like to wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”
