Charlie Adam on the brink of retiring

Charlie Adam fears that he could be two matches away from retiring. 

With just five wins from 36 SPFL matches Dundee need to win their last two matches to stand a chance of reaching the Play Off and avoid direct relegation to The Championship. 

Adam has had a nightmare season, failing to last beyond an hour in two matches against Celtic, a driving disqualification and in recent weeks a dive and opposition assist have gone viral. 

At the age of 36 it looks like time is almost up on his playing days with a full-time media career beckoning next season. 

Discussing his future after setting up St Mirren up for a win on Saturday, the former Murray Park starlet told The Sun: 

Would I consider playing on anywhere else? No I don’t think so, not in Scotland. I only want to play here and if that isn’t to be then I have a decision to make. Will I stay on? It’s not my decision. 

This is my boyhood club and I’d love to be here next season but it’s not about me, it’s about what is best for the club. If that is for me to leave and give other boys opportunities, no problem. 

I have loved it here but it’s up to the owners and whoever the manager is what happens next. It’s not the way I’d like to leave if that’s what happens, but we’ll need to wait and see. 

During his court appearance in January ahead of his driving ban it was disclosed that Adam was on a salary of £182,000 from Dundee alongside his media work. 

Dundee are five points behind St Johnstone, on Wednesday they host Hibs then complete their Premiership programme away to Livingston.
