and live on Freeview channel 276
Rangers travel north to Tayside to take on Dundee in their latest Scottish Premiership clash this evening, with Philippe Clement taking charge of his fourth fixture in only 11 days amid a hectic schedule.
The new Ibrox manager has overseen a positive start to his reign, despite his players doing it the hard way by coming from a goal behind to beat Hearts last time out, with James Tavernier’s penalty followed by a Danilo header deep into injury-time securing maximum points.
They start this evening now just five points behind league leaders Celtic and there is no let for the Light Blues with a Viaplay Cup semi-final against Hearts at Hampden on the horizon this weekend.
Due to traffic congestion approaching the City of Discovery, kick-off has been DELAYED until 8.30pm after Storm Ciaran threatened the postponement of the game following torrential rainfall.
Philippe Clement has decided to make FOUR changes to the team who started the 2-1 victory over Hearts at Ibrox. Leon Balgoun is handed his first start of the season at centre-back in place of Ben Davies, while Danilo makes his first start in two months after playing a starring role from off the bench at the weekend.
Scott Wright and Ryan Jack also come into the side, with Cyriel Dessers, Todd Cantwell and the injured Nicolas Raskin making way. Defenders Borna Barisic and Dujon Sterling are nearing a return to full fitness and are included among the substitutes.
So here’s your confirmed starting line-ups ahead of today’s Scottish Premiership clash...
Dundee starting XI (3-5-1-1)
