For the second weekend running Charlie Adam is featuring in the headlines for the wrong reasons.
Last week his dive against St Johnstone went viral with almost everyone on Twitter from Gary Lineker downwards mocking the veteran midfielders attempt to gain a free-kick.
Behind the dive was a club deep in relegation trouble, five points adrift with a new manager still waiting for his first win after nine matches in charge.
After drawing with St Johnstone McGhee took Dundee to Aberdeen today with the home club in almost as bad a run of form as the visitors.
Seven minutes into the second half it was time up for Adam, as Mark McGee made the move the gap-toothed midfielder made his displeasure known.
Lewis Ferguson scored the only goal of the game from the penalty spot in the 73rd minute to push Dundee closer to The Championship but it was the substitution of Adam and his reaction that dominated the post-match interviews.
