Graeme Souness couldn't get away from Newcastle (and Blackburn for that matter) quick enough, but despite his failings south of the border, the Jocks are currently looking for 'Souness Mark II'. Dave Mackinnon last night revealed he wants a player-manager in the Souness mould to kick-start his own Dundee revolution.
The new chief executive of Dundee outlined his bold blueprint for the future - with Rangers star Alex Rae the front-runner to succeed Alan Kernaghan in the hot seat.
MacKinnon was a player at Ibrox when Souness's arrival sent shockwaves throughout Scottish football.
MacKinnon: 'Rangers were a Premier League team going through some pretty bad times. I think they were fourth in the table when Souness came and he was a real quality player. He immediately gave the team a boost and having a player of his stature attracted players from elsewhere because he was a legend. If they were thinking of going to Aberdeen, obviously knowing that someone like Souness was at Rangers counted for quite a lot.'
