Charlie Adam hints at retirement as relegation looms at Dundee

Former Rangers midfielder Charlie Adam has hinted that he will hang his boots up in the summer if he isn’t offered a new contract at Dundee.

The veteran is a free agent at the end of the season and, with Dundee facing relegation from the Premiership, his future in the City of Discovery is uncertain.

Having helped his boyhood heroes win promotion a year ago, Adam admits he may look to go into coaching if a new contract isn’t forthcoming, insisting he only wants to play for Dundee.

“Would I consider playing on anywhere else?” Adam said when asked about his future. “No I don’t think so, not in Scotland.

“If there was nothing else, then I would look to retire and go into coaching or management.

“I only want to play here and if that is not to be then I have a decision to make.

We have a big summer ahead for our club, there will be big decisions to make.

“What way the club will go I don’t know and we will have to see what happens in the next few weeks.

“Will I stay on? It’s not my decision. This is my boyhood club and I would love to be here next season but it’s not about me, it’s about what is best for the club moving forward.

“If that is for me to leave and give other boys opportunities, then no problem.”

Charlie Adam’s time at Dundee set to come to an ignominious end

Having helped Dundee return to the Premiership last year, Adam has been unable to stop their inevitable slide back to the Championship this season.

His performances for Dundee have done little to help their cause and his ‘assist‘ against St Mirren at the weekend summed up a miserable campaign.

If this is the end of Adam’s playing career, there have been plenty of highs during his time with Rangers, Liverpool, Blackpool and others.

However, his stint at Dundee looks like ending in disaster as the Dens Park side stare at relegation back to the second tier and a summer of rebuilding.
