Dundee manager Paul Hartley applauded his team’s spirit after a cruel finale sent them back to the bottom of the Premiership table.
The Dark Blues conceded a stoppage time winner to Rangers and Hartley felt it robbed his side of a deserved point.
They had chances themselves, with Marcus Haber and Kevin Gomis fluffing free headers, Tom Hateley seeing two free-kicks saved and James Vincent being denied by a sliding clearance from Clint Hill.
“We were a minute away from getting a good point and probably a deserved point,” Hartley said.
“It was just that concentration for the full game that cost us, one ball into the box, which we defended brilliantly for the majority of the game. It’s a real killer blow for the players because I thought they were terrific.
“We had good chances, Vincent just had to get a nick on it and put it in, and Gomis and Hateley, but the way the team performed over the majority of the game, and over the last three or four weeks, has been great.”
