Tam Courts have decided to leave Dundee United with immediate effect after leading the club to their best finish in a decade. He has been linked with a move to Croatian club Rijeka and was given permission to hold talks. They were not willing to pay the necessary compensation for his services with now confirming that he will leave to explore other opportunities.

“I’m immensely grateful to everyone at Dundee United for the opportunity they gave me to manage such a prestigious club,” Tam Courts said. “Tony Asghar took a chance on me and I had terrific backing from the owner Mark Ogren, the exec team, and from my backroom staff such as Liam Fox and Adam Asghar. A special thank you must also go to the players who have been a joy to work with and a pleasure to lead. They give maximum effort to everything they do for the club and I hope they have continued success for next season and beyond. It’s not an easy decision to move on from Dundee United but I believe my time with the club has helped me grow and develop immensely, both personally and professionally and I feel ready for my next challenge.”

“Dundee United can confirm Head Coach Tam Courts has left the club by mutual agreement,” the club said in a statement. “Courts led United to our highest-placed finish in nine years, securing European football for the first time in a decade. He also gave 16 Academy graduates first-team experience, with Archie Meekison, Kieran Freeman, and Ross Graham earning Scotland U21 call-ups. But after expressing a desire to explore other options away from Tannadice, we have now reached an agreement with Courts that will see him leave the club with immediate effect.”
