DUNDEE UNITED legend Eamonn Bannon has told city rivals Dundee they may need to go part-time in a bid to get out of the financial mire.

The Dens Park club could fall into administration for the second time in seven years - with a pounds 250,000 tax bill still outstanding.

And Bannon, right, has urged them to start from scratch again by rearing their own young players. The only other way is to find another investor like Callum Melville who tried and failed to get the club into the SPL and is on the brink of walking away.

Bannon said: "Melville came in and ploughed in his own money on the premise they'd get into the SPL. When that didn't happen the alarm bells started ringing. If they want to survive they have to get back to what they can afford. Get back to the bare bones and start from scratch, even if it's only as a part-time club."

Bannon is certain Dundee wouldn't be in their current mess if the city had just one club.

He said: "I don't think a city like Dundee needs two clubs. In a perfect world you'd just have Dundee FC in a nice big stadium, like Aberdeen."
