Dundee Parts Company With Barry Smithby Jack Kitson / 20 February 2013, 13:08Tweet
Dundee have parted company with under-fire manager Barry Smith following a torrid run of results. The Dens Park club are currently rock bottom of the Scottish Premier League and a whopping 15 points adrift of safety.
The Dee have failed to win any of their last 12 SPL games, which is a shocking sequence of results dating back to their last victory on 17th November. In total Smith won just three of his 26 league matches in charge and now, with just 12 games remaining, the struggling club are almost certain to be relegated at the end of the season and must merely play for pride, unless they can conjure up a miracle comback similar to that of the 2010/11 campaign.
Smith replaced Gordon Chisholm at the helm in October 2012 after the club entered into administration. He impressively managed to keep Dundee in the First Division at the end of his first season in charge after he somehow inspired his troops to overcome a staggering 25 point deduction by leading them on a 23-game unbeaten run. Last season Dundee finished second in the league but were handed promotion to the top flight after Rangers were demoted to the Third Division.
