Recent Form

Rangers have now secured a trio of victories under Giovanni van Bronckhorst, with a controversial late Kemar Roofe penalty seeing off Hibernian last time out at Easter Road. 

There are no new injury concerns for the hosts to deal with, with Ryan jack potentially in line to return to the squad here, though with Leon Balogun and Filip Helander absent still, Calvin Bassey will continue at centre-back alongside Connor Goldson.

Rangers are W8-D3-L1 since the start of October in all competitions, with their only defeat coming against Hibernian in the League Cup semi-finals when they were between managers.

At Ibrox alone, they’ve won six of nine unbeaten games in domestic competitions this season, while they’ve won 23 of 26 unbeaten league games there since the start of last season.

Rangers To Win And Both Teams To Score

After a dismal run where Dundee went W1-D3-L6 across all competitions, they’ve certainly picked up their form of late. 

They’ve now won three of four outings as they registered clean sheets against St. Mirren, Motherwell and St. Johnstone, pulling themselves away from the bottom of the table. 

However, the other game saw them defeated 4-2 at home by Celtic, while their previous game before those recent results saw them go down 5-0 to Ross County, so we wouldn’t be banking on another clean sheet here.

Indeed, Rangers have scored exactly four times in each of their past four games hosting Dundee, though these came across the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons, as Dundee were absent from the Premiership for the past two campaigns. 




Rangers To Win 2-1

They’ve met once this term, as Joe Aribo’s early goal was enough to settle the contest at Dens Park, but Rangers are more prolific on home turf and won’t be satisfied by the single goal here.

Although Rangers kept a clean sheet in that clash with Dundee back in September, they’re without a shutout in their past five home league games now. 

Meanwhile, Dundee have scored at least once in seven of their last eight games, and given they’re in better form than when these two last met, will fancy their chances of getting onto the scoreboard.
