United need to tame 'wounded animal'

United need to tame 'wounded animal'

Dundee United boss Peter Houston described this weekend's meeting with Rangers as like facing a "wounded animal" at Tannadice.

The Ibrox club have really been going through a massive crisis both off and inevitably on the pitch since the Tangerines knocked them out of the Scottish Cup last month but Houston firmly believes that makes them at their most dangerous.

"Rangers are like a wounded animal. I would say they are at their most dangerous when they are wounded," Houston told the Dundee Courier. "Their release will be going out on to the park and doing what they do best in spite of everything else that is going on.

"At the end of the day, they still have a right good team to put out on to the park," he continued. "So we can't afford to down by even 10% on the day. We have to make sure that we are at it right from kick-off."
