Paul McGowan has described Neil McCann as a “hothead” as he gave the inside story on Scott Bain’s Dundee fall out and subsequent exit.

Bain was involved in a furious half-time bust up with former Rangers ace and Dens Park boss McCann during a Premiership clash against Hamilton in October 2017. And this resulted in the Scotland keeper being banished to play with the Dark Blues youth side.

The goalie was then farmed out on-loan to Hibs before linking up with Celtic where he's helped land historic double and treble Trebles.

After McCann was axed by Dundee Bain took to social media to post laughing emojis and former Dee teammate McGowan recalled the moment that their relationship took a turn for the worst.

On Open Goal's Keeping the Ball on the Ground, McGowan was asked: "Do you know how he fell out with Dundee?”

And he responded: "We were playing a game. McCann always wanted to pass it from the back. One got cut out and he shouted over to McCann, 'f*** off'.

"Neil McCann came in, he's a hothead, and he said, 'what did you say to me?'. We were getting beat 2-0, and Bainy was like that, 'I told you to f*** off'.

“Instead of just lying, knowing what Neil McCann's like...

“McCann was like, 'you wit?' and Bainy said, 'I told you to f*** off'. We were all just sitting and McCann was like, 'you told me to f*****g f*** off?'. He was right in his face.

"Bainy was just sitting there like, 'aye'. He didn't care. I'm thinking, 'f*** me!' McCann asked for the sub goalie to go and warm up but he never put him on. 

“After that it was just a mess. He left him out but it's actually probably been the best thing that's ever happened to Bainy in all honesty."
