Ross aims for 'consistent period of success' at Dundee United

Dundee United's new head coach Jack Ross has already identified transfer targets as he looks to bring "a consistent period of success" to the Tannadice club.

The 46-year-old, who had been out of work since being sacked by Hibernian last December, insists he was waiting for the right opportunity to return to management.

"Ideally you want to be given an opportunity where there's room for growth and further success," he told Sky Sports News.

"What the club achieved last year was terrific under Tam and the playing group, but I think there's an opportunity and I want to have consistent period of success and I think there's the potential to do so within this club.

"You don't always have the ability to choose as a manager where you go back in, I've had to be patient but equally I wanted to wait for the one that felt right and this has felt like that from the first conversation."

One of Ross' first challenges will be to replace goalkeeper Ben Siegrist after his move to Scottish Premiership champions Celtic, and he admits they will not be "easy gloves to fill.""He's had that opportunity because he's performed so well for Dundee United," he added.
