Rangers vs. Dundee United

Ibrox Stadium

Sat 31.12.2005

Ibrox at Hogmanay

Dundee United end 2005 with a tough trip to Glasgow to face Rangers at Ibrox.

United do have a good recent record against Rangers and haven't been beaten by them in the league for two years but they were beaten 7-1 back in February this year in a league cup semi-final clash.

Rangers can consider United to be a bit of a bogey team but that will make them dangerous opponents as they will be out to put that right and United will need to be tight in defence if they want to get anything from this game.

Rangers Team News:

Rangers will again be without Soti Kyrgiakos after his third red card of the season last week, Bob Malcolm is also suspended.

They have eight first team players missing through injury but should have Fernando Ricksen back in the squad after a three week absence.

Player to watch: Peter Lovenkrands

On form dane has been scoring for fun recently and will have to be watched.

Dundee United Team News:

Dundee Utd will have to find a replacement for midfielder Peter Canero who signed for New York/New Jersey Metrostars this week.

They also have Grant Brebner and Lee Mair out injured.

Player to watch: Lee Miller

Nearly moved to Rangers in the summer but ended up at Tannadice.

Match Prediction:

There haven't been many goals scored in this fixture in the last year or so but Rangers have been in a few high scoring games recently. However I can't see there being too many so I'll go for a narrow 1-0 victory for the Gers.
