Rangers vs Dundee United: How to watch Scottish Premiership fixture on TV, live stream, kick-off time and team news

Two clubs in similarly poor form clash at Ibrox on Saturday in desperate need of maximum points.

Rangers face Dundee United on Scottish Premiership duty at Ibrox this afternoon with both sides desperately searching for a much-needed confidence booster.

The hosts have lost each of their last three matches by an aggregate score of 11-0, while the Tangerines head to Glasgow without a victory in the top-flight this season.

Giovanni van Bronckhost is also under some pressure after watching his side concede by three of more goals in recent outings against Celtic, Ajax and Napoli.

The Light Blues have failed to register a point in their Champions League group after crashing to heavy losses, including a 3-0 defeat to Serie A leaders Napoli on Wednesday night in an eventful fixture.

Victory for the Gers this weekend as theyr shift their focus back on domestic business is now considered essential with their city rivals already five points clear at the top of the table.

Due to the postponement of all football fixture across Britain last weekend, Rangers missed out on a trip north to face Aberdeen at Pittodrie, but they will be eager to make amends against a Dundee United team they have beaten in their previous seven meetings on home soil.

Their opponents have been leaking goals so far this season with 26 shipped in their first nine league and cup matches.

Another bad omen for the Tayside outfit if their failure to keep a clean sheet against Rangers in over 18 years, with caretaker boss Liam Fox tasked with ending that wretched run.

The club’s board are currently locked in talks with several candidates to fill the vacant managerial post - former Everton assistant manager Duncan Ferguson is believed to have rejected an official approach.
