RANGERS take on Dundee on Sunday in the Scottish Premiership and we’ve pulled together everything you need to know about Paul Hartley’s side.
NICKNAME: The Dark Blues
STADIUM: Dens Park
GROUND CAPACITY: 11,506
PITCH SIZE: 100m x 68m
MANAGER: Paul Hartley
TOP SCORER: Marcus Haber (4)
KICK OFF: 15:15
VENUE: Dens Park
COMPETITION: Ladbrokes Premiership
SEASON SO FAR: DUNDEE
Dundee, like every side in the bottom seven, have battled inconsistency this season, and while they currently sit seventh in the Premiership table, they are only three points above the play-off spot and six above the automatic relegation place.
Having gone out of the Scottish Cup to the Championship’s bottom side St Mirren in January, Paul Hartley’s men have only the league to focus on, and last weekend they drew 1-1 with Kilmarnock at Dens.
Their next game after they take on the Light Blues sees them travel to Fir Park to take on Motherwell.
ALL AWAY MATCHES:
DUNDEE MANAGER PREVIEW:
“We will set a team up to try and get three points and think about how we can hurt them, how we can exploit their weaknesses.
“We don’t really think about what is going on behind the scenes at Rangers.
“A lot has gone on there over the last week.
DUNDEE PLAYER PREVIEW:
Cammy Kerr: “I think we should all relish this game. The players won’t need any motivation to be up for it.
“It is against Rangers and they are obviously still one of the biggest teams in the country. We need to go out there and give a performance to the fans.
“We don’t really know what’s going on through at Rangers. It’s probably a good time to play them because you never know what will happen with all that’s going on.
“Everyone knows it’s been up and down for ourselves this year and we’ve lacked consistency. But hopefully we can find that vital consistency between now and the end of the season.”
