Rangers welcome Dundee FC to the Ibrox Stadium as they look to put pressure on Aberdeen for the 2nd spot. Celtic have established a strong foothold and it will be a major surprise if any team is able to knock them off the perch this season. Coming back to the game, Mark Warburton will have fond memories regarding the opposition as his first win as the manager of Rangers came in August in a 1-2 away win against Dundee.
The Gers need to win these games now in a bid to stay close to the top as anymore hiccups will see them fall by the wayside. On the other hand, two wins in their last two matches have lifted Dundee from the bottom of the table. And they will look to continue this ascent and get as far away as possible from their previous spot.
Rangers have won the last 8 fixtures both home and away against Dundee. A scoreline of 2-0 seems to be something which has become associated with this fixture and something many expect the outcome to be tomorrow. Interestingly, Dundee will play in the Ibrox Stadium after 12 long years.
Rangers have no fresh injury concerns ahead of their Scottish Premiership match with Dundee on Saturday.
Midfielder Jordan Rossiter has suffered another setback in his recovery from a calf strain and is still not in full training.
Faissal El Bakhtaoui and Kevin Gomis available for the trip to Glasgow. The latter had missed 3 Premiership games after he suffered a calf strain during the 2-1 defeat to St Johnstone on October 23. Defender Gomis is fit to play despite having to leave the pitch in the last match against Motherwell, in which the Dark Blues won 2-0.
Mark O’Hara will not be considered for selected although he has returned to training. Yordi Teijsse and Nicky Law are also likely to miss out through injury.
Foderingham — Wallace, Hill, Kiernan, Tavernier — Windass, Halliday, Holt — Miller, O’Halloran, Waghorn
Mitchell — O’Dea, Gomis, Gadzhalov, Holt, Kerr — Hateley, McGowan, Vincent — Haber, Wighton
Dundee will play without inhibitions as the onus is on the Gers to come up with a victory and this, in turn, might make them more formidable. Dundee need to win a few more matches to maintain the momentum and keep their upwards movement intact. Whereas, Rangers see this as a must-win match and to be honest their far superior quality will most likely see them sail through.
