Levein promises changes

Dundee United manager Craig Levein has vowed to wield the axe after watching the Terrors suffer a humiliating 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Rangers on Saturday. Levein, who has overseen a dramatic upturn in fortunes since replacing the sacked Craig Brewster in November, was unhappy with the manner of the defeat at Ibrox and has promised changes. "I was happy the way things were going for the first 25 minutes. We had the territorial advantage and Rangers were very nervous," he claimed. "We shot ourselves in the foot and gifted them goals which made them confident. "It was bad decisions that led to the first two goals - our keeper didn't need to come out for the first and we should have headed clear their second. "Some players here don't have the strength of character to come back and will leave before the end of the transfer window. "It was an unacceptable scoreline and if we don't fight to the end players will go."
