Terrors travel for Ibrox test

Terrors travel for Ibrox test

Dundee United visit Ibrox and take on Rangers in the Scottish Cup fifth round on Sunday afternoon (12.15pm).

Midfielder Danny Swanson has been ruled out and rejoins long-term absentee Scott Severin on the sidelines. But latest signing Milos Lacny could be handed a debut in attack for the visitors.

"They [Rangers] have a good group there with big characters and they will be using that to bring them together," United chief Peter Houston told BBC Scotland. "They are a good side, they beat Hibs recently by scoring a few goals.

"They have a few injuries at the moment, but still have a squad packed with quality," he continued. "It will be a good game, both teams create chances and it's going to be very competitive."

Rangers are without a whole host of players with Kyle Lafferty, Steven Naismith, Kane Hemmings, Jamie Ness, Steven Whittaker and Kirk Broadfoot all restricted to watching from the stands.
