McNamara: We deserved point

Dundee United manager Jackie McNamara remained non-committal

about the 86th minute penalty that allowed his side to snatch a 2-2

draw at home to Hibernian in the SPL on Sunday.

Referee Alan Muir had no hesitation pointing to the spot after

Paul Hanlon had tripped Gary Mackay-Steven late in the second


Johnny Russell converted the kick but television replays suggest

that the foul had taken place outside the box.

Asked about the decision McNamara said: “I’ve not seen it


“I thought there was a foul on Johnny before it that we didn’t


“Some people are saying it was outside the box but I thought we

deserved at least a point for the second-half performance.”
