Manager Jackie McNamara labelled an “outstanding” display as Dundee United were victorious against Aberdeen.

The visitors took the honours 3-0 courtesy of goals from Ryan Dow, Gary Mackay-Steven and late on substitute Chris Erskine at Pittodrie.

“Defensively our work ethic – as a unit from the back four onwards – we were outstanding,” McNamara told BBC Scotland. “If I was going to be critical it would be our possession at times.

“To be fair Aberdeen put us under a lot of pressure especially in the second half, but I thought we dealt with everything,” he added. “They had one or two chances where maybe we rode our luck a little bit, but we still had a threat going forward and we could have made it three earlier. To a man we were very good today.”
