confirms he did not apply for the job!his mate from days at rangers asked himScorned by the critics (this writer a**** them) over his Dundee appointment, he then stood accused of suggesting on a radio programme that Scotland should attempt to hack off Gareth Bale's legs in last night's World Cup qualifier at Hampden Park.When I met up with Brown to discuss all this and more, he was blunt and beaming with smiles and thoroughly engaging company. "I'm no hot-head," he told me. "A few people have the wrong idea about me. I'm as happy these days looking after my new, wee grandson as doing anything else."Alas, his grandpa duties have been rudely interrupted in recent weeks. Dundee, in freefall in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League, binned Barry Smith and seemingly made everyone aghast by inviting "Bomber" to take charge until the end of the season.I was on a radio discussion the night that announcement was made and I joined in the general incredulity at the decision. Dundee fans, meanwhile, bombarded the media with their indignation. This was a mystifying decision, I suggested. What had Brown ever done as a manager?Well, what do we know? Under Brown, in their past five matches, Dundee have garnered more points than they had done in months and look a transformed team. Let us see what the long-term evidence throws up but, right now, he could hardly go any better.t he can bring to Dundee, Brown offers a stout defence of his credentials."I've learned lots of things, from Graeme Souness, from Walter Smith, from Dick Advocaat, from a pile of managers I've worked for," he says. "I also look back to my own career and ask, 'what made me tick, what made my team-mates tick?' You bring it all to the table."I can bring experience. I look back at my own career, all these years and all these games, and all the managers and coaches I've worked under. I've got a helluva lot of experience.
