Rangers will look to momentarily close the gap on Celtic in the title race with a win over Dundee on Saturday afternoon.
Philippe Clement has named his Rangers team to face Dundee at Ibrox on a drizzly afternoon in Glasgow.
The Light Blues edged out Hearts in midweek with a solid 1-0 win over their counterparts from the capital, with Abdallah Sima’s well-taken strike enough to put an end to the Jambos’ four-game winning streak in the league and keep the heat on Celtic in the title race. It should’ve been more with Danilo, Sima himself and Ridvan Yilmaz all missing gilt-edged opportunities, but Clement won’t mind too much with another three points on the board.
But attentions now turn to Dundee, who alongside St Mirren have been the division’s surprise package in terms of form and results picked up. Many predicted the Tayside outfit to struggle throughout the campaign but a superb bout of pre-Christmas form has seen the Dens Park outfit sit seventh in the table and just two points from the top six.
Rangers know the clash won’t be easy, though they’ll be buoyed by their 5-0 win against today’s opponents away from home in the initial league meeting between themselves and Tony Docherty’s side – and here is how they line up today on a cold day at Ibrox with Jose Cifuentes returning to the fold following injury to Tom Lawrence and Connor Goldson being dropped in place of John Souttar.
