Lee Wilkie takes up new sports management role

Wilkie has struggled with a persistent knee injury

Former Dundee United captain Lee Wilkie is back in football just months after retiring through injury.

However, the 30-year-old will not be making a comeback, instead he has become a client manager for his former agent representing players' interests.

Charlie Duddy, of Premier Sports Management, told BBC Scotland Wilkie's experience would prove invaluable.

Wilkie retired in April following a number of unsuccessful operations on persistent knee problems.

The defender impressed for United after joining from city rivals Dundee in 2006.

He battled back from injury on several occasions but was forced to hang up his boots before the end of last season.

"Lee will identify clients and give them the benefit of his wide experience in the game," Duddy said.

"He will also liaise with players who we currently represent like Andy Webster, Paul Dixon and Sott Robertson.

"Lee represented both Dundee clubs and Scotland with distinction and we are delighted to have him on board.

"He has a huge reputation in the game among fellow professionals and is ideally suited to looking after their interests."

Wilkie will also spend some time away from football when he begins working on an oil rig.
