Newly appointed Dundee manager, James McPake, has spoken to the Scottish Sun about his transfer plans.

That relegation and a slew of contract expirations mean there’s been something of an exodus from the club since then.
Right now, it’s reported that there are only six contracted first-team players at Dens Park. However, a handful of others could sign extensions over the coming days.

Rudden to the Dee?

This is of interest to Rangers considering one of the club’s brightest young talents, Zak Rudden, is reportedly being targeted for a loan move by the Championship newbies [Scottish Sun].
After a breakout 2018/19 at Falkirk, it’s vital that the youngster continues to progress next season. Steven Gerrard has stated he wants to have a look at the forward in pre-season [RangersTV], while Partick Thistle are also said to be interested [Scottish Sun].
McPake is trying to put a positive spin on his club’s current predicament. Perhaps, with the aim of trying to convince the likes of Rudden that the future is bright. Either way, he appears confident that targets will be secured.

“We need to get our recruitment right,” he said, as quoted by the Scottish Sun. “We don’t have many players at the moment, but the positive is that I don’t need to change ten to bring ten in.

“I think the players I have left in the squad are good players. People will say but they have just been relegated. I know they have, but they are good characters.
“I know each and every one of them. I am delighted with what we have got. We will do our work in this window.”
Rudden starred for both the Bairns and Scotland U19s last season. He netted 12 goals in the Scottish Championship and a hattrick against Cyprus in a youth international.
