Jackie McNamara: Felt Dundee United deserved at least a draw

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 half.

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 again.

"I thought there was a foul on Johnny before it that we didn't get.

"Some people are saying it was outside the box but I thought we deserved at least a point for the second-half performance."
