Today at 3:00 pm local time Rangers will get their league campaign back started following the international break. For Americans the game is starting at 10:00 am EST.
Rangers will get to be home at Ibrox which will be a welcome sight after playing their last three games on the road including the long trip to Russia.
Rangers have been very tough at home this season and have only given up two goals at Ibrox.
Dundee is very bad. I think most people would still be surprised if they remained at the bottom of the table to be relegated at the end of the seasons but they have been so bad so far that Dundee fans have to certainly be worried.
In the young season, Dundee has scored the fewest goals in the Premiership with just 2. But don’t worry, they make up for their lack of goal scoring by allowing the 3rd most goals in the Premiership this season with 7.
But wait, there’s more!
Dundee also has the 2nd fewest shots in the Premiership. The only good news for the team is that they sit firmly mid-table at 7th in shots on target.
Rather simply put, Dundee is not good. Despite the low number of points, we are still pretty sure that Rangers are good. Especially given Dundee’s offensive inability being contested by a Rangers side that has been almost comically firm at times, and it is hard to see how Dundee would score any goals by way of anything other than a total fluke.
The good news is that, as Steven Gerrard mentioned in his press conference, Dundee are not a boring team. They will at least attempt to play proper football and are not likely to fall back into a total defensive shell. So we will get to see Rangers play a proper game against an opponent while (hopefully) remaining at full strength.
Toss in that Rangers are at home, and this should be about as easy as they get in football. If this game is anything other than a very convincing win then it may officially be time to worry about where exactly this team is going.
