  1. Dundee earn a great point today after going down to 10 men and keeping Rangers out. Kenny Miller opened the scoring in the 9th minute. However the Dee didn't stay in the lead long after Ralph brought down Daniel Candeias just outside the box and Andy Halliday scored from the free-kick. Kyle Lafferty had a goal chopped off for off-side and it was a big felt off for the Dark Blues. Dundee lasted the next 70 minutes and held out for a point that takes us above St Mirren in the league.
  2. Kenny Miller came back to haunt his old club when he opened the scoring for his sixth goal in four games but Nathan Ralph was sent off on the 19th minute with our opponents slotting home the resulting free-kick. Rangers then had a goal ruled offside but from then on in, Dundee defended expertly to limit the Glasgow club to just one attempt on target in the second half. The result meant that Dundee moved off the bottom of the Premiership on goal difference for the first time since Motherwell defeated the Dark Blues on the 1st September at Dens Park. “I was delighted considering we were down to 10 men for so long,” beamed Jim McIntyre. “It is a difficult match when you go down to 10 men against one of the best sides in the country. But I thought the boys showed great resolve and good organisation. Having said that, I didn’t think Rangers cut us open that much. Jack (Hamilton) has made one or two saves. “We knew we would have to give up the wider areas and defend a lot of crosses but we were nice and narrow and the distances between our two fours were very good. So, the players deserve all the credit because it is not easy to handle that.” “It was an opportunity to get off the bottom of the league today. “We have had two or three of them and we haven’t managed to take them. So, I am really pleased that we have managed to do that but I will reiterate there is still so much hard work ahead. “There are a lot of tough games in December so it is just a case of one at a time. “The boys are in a happy place at the moment. There is a real spirit of togetherness there that you see on the training ground every day.”

    Dundee Appeal Nathan Ralph Red Card

    The defender was punished following his challenge on Daniel Candeias on the edge of the Dundee box which resulted in Rangers equalising after Kenny Miller had put the Dee ahead. Following the end of the match, Dundee manage Jim McIntyre said that he had spoken to the referee Alan Muir and he had confirmed that it was for denying a clear goalscoring opportunity. TV footage however shows that fellow defender Andrew Boyle was in close proximity and able to make a challenge if Ralph was unable to do so. The appeal will be heard by a disciplinary tribunal this Wednesday.

  5. The ref against Rangers was Alan Muir. How did you rate his performance in this game?
  6. Table toppers Dundee were five points clear of Rangers who sat third in the table although we had played two-games more. The Dens Park outfit had the previous week just beaten Celtic and were hoping to make it eight wins in a row while the current Scottish Champions were unbeaten at home and in all competitions and eager to close the gap at the summit of the league. The chairman John F. Wilson praised Dundee in his notes for the matchday programme declaring, “They are the type this country needs as we strive to recapture the reputation that was once ours of being the greatest footballing country on earth.” Of course, our run in the following year’s European Cup where we tore apart some of the finest sides in Europe, would make his words ring true. Until then, he would have to watch on as Dundee laid down their Championship credentials in incredible fashion. In the ‘Up Wi’ The Bonnets – The History Of Dundee FC’ book, Norrie Price wrote how a dense fog had descended upon Glasgow and despite an anticipated large crowd, rumours around the games postponement and countless supporters buses being turned around by police less a mile to the ground meant that only half of the stadium was full. The fog started to lift with just half an hour before kick-off and the fans who were on their way back home would miss an all-time classic Dundee victory. It’s hard to believe that a game that ended 5-1 would remain goalless at half time but that’s what happened here. All the action would happen with a flurry of goal activity in the last forty-five minutes. In the opening two-minutes of the restart, Alan Gilzean put Dundee ahead with two quick-fire goals and would then claim his hat-trick on the 73rd minute when he slotted home following a quickly taken corner from Gordon Smith. Rangers would pull a goal back but this would not deter the Dark Blues. Alan Gilzean would dummy the unlucky Rangers defender who was marking him before drilling the ball home into the bottom corner of the net. Andy Penman would add number five when Jim Baxter attempted a pass back which was short and the striker was on hand to take full advantage. This result put Dundee seven points ahead of the reigning champions and five ahead of second place Kilmarnock who were beaten 3-2 at home to Raith Rovers. The previous season, Rangers had beaten Kilmarnock to the Championship title by one point, also defeating the Ayrshire outfit 2-0 in the League Cup. They also made it all the way to the European Cup Winners’ Cup Final but had to do with being runners up to Fiorentina. This made this result even more special as it came against a Gers team who had ‘been there and done it.’ The national newspapers lauded Dundee with praise after this victory. The Daily Record went with the headline ‘Rangers Smashed By Terrible Trio’ with reporter Rex Kingsley describing that days events as, “The home fans were stunned as the prancing, cultured Dundee side reduced their idols to wide-eyed, fear-stricken units.” Other headlines such as ‘A Fabulous Fiver’ and ‘Gilzean Leads Massacre Of Rangers’ were put out by the media while the Evening Times describe this result as ‘This Ibrox “Slaughter” Was No Surprise.” Gair Henderson could not speak highly of this Dundee time in his match report for the Evening Times by praising the Dee numerous times throughout it. ‘But to those of us who have seen Dundee recently this was no shock and no sensational result. I hinted a few weeks that the cry this season might not be “who will stop Rangers?” but “who will stop Dundee?” ‘ ‘This is the best footballing playing team I have seen this season – and last season too for that matter of fact.’ ‘Alan Gilzean, for instance. He strides through and he hits ‘em in a way which is both a lesson to Rangers and Scotland these days. And there is Gordon Smith, the man who was said to be “past it” five years ago.’ ‘They were thrashed because the forwards, a shadow of the forwards of a month or two back, could make nothing at all of the granite-looking defence of Ure, Hamilton, Cox and Liney.’ It was a truly sensational victory for the soon-to-be Scottish Champions and if no-one knew it before, they would know now that Dundee were genuine title contenders.

    Dundee 2 - 1 Rangers

    Dundee beat Rangers for the first time in 25 years in a 2 - 1 win at Dens Park. Dundee changed formation and tactics for this game against Rangers and it paid off. The Dark Blues played a 4-4-2 formation and moved Wighton and O'Hara to the side with devastating effect. Dundee nearly scored within the first 60 seconds after a great run and cross from Wighton down the left, but O'Hara header went wide of the target. Mark O'Hara (13') and Kevin Holt (41') made it 2 - 0 before the half time. Rangers Gardner pull one back on the 62nd minute to make the final score 2 - 1 the Dark blues.

  14. When Glen Kamara walked through the doors of Dens Park last summer, he was a virtual unknown with the Dark Blue faithful and Scotland in general. However, he very quickly won over the supporters and has become a fans favourite due of his silky football skills on the park. The former Arsenal player went on to win 'The Players Player award' and the 'Andrew De Vries Player of the Year' last Sunday, at the annual DSA Player of the year awards last Sunday. His skills have not gone unnoticed by other clubs either, the Sun newspaper has reported that a number of clubs, including Celtic and Rangers are apparently after his signature. There also have been rumours that clubs South of the border are expected to table a bid for the 22 year old. Dundee are currently in talks over a new contract and Neil McCann has stated that he 'doesn't want him going anywhere' and that Dundee FC are doing everything they can to tie the in demand midfielder to a longer deal at Dens Park. The Dundee manager stated at a 'Fans Q&A' that Dundee FC won't accept anything but a 'serious cash offer for the midfielder and are in talks to extend his contract at Dens Park. “Glen hasn’t gone under the radar so we’re not ignorant to the fact he will attract attention. “So I am not in a position to say he won’t go because if a big bid comes in for him the club can use that to make itself better. “But I don’t want Glen to go anywhere and he won’t be going anywhere unless it’s right for this club. “It will need to be some serious cash. Glen won’t walk out of Dens Park unless this club gets a very big deal. We are currently speaking to Glen and have been for a wee bit now. “I met him the other week for breakfast before he went on holiday because he’s been called up to the Finnish squad again. That’s another feather in the club’s cap because he’s become a full international here at this club, not Arsenal. I’ve spoken to him and he’s loved his time here, so he’s not in any rush to get away and those talks will continue.”
  15. Signs for Hamburg. David Bates, signed from Raith Rovers and appeared 17 times for Rangers has been allowed to leave and managed to get a four year deal at Hamburg. Another youngster taking his chance abroad (most likely in bundesLiga2). Good luck to the lad.
  16. Rangers run rampant over a poor Dundee side. Goals from Miller 39', Morelos 68', Murphy 79', Candeias 90' means that Rangers run out 4-0 winners today.

    Rangers: The View From The Opposition

    The Dee go into this match with Rangers on the back of two confidence boosting performances that came in our draw on Sunday with Hearts amd then on Wednesday at Parkhead against Celtic which also produced a point. Rangers will be looking for a win to keep their challenge for second place going, especially since they have only picked up one point in their last three matches. We spoke to Rangers FC Fan Page to get their views leading up to Saturdays clash. Rangers started the second half of the season well when you when you won 6 out of 7. The last three games however has seen them slump to two defeats and then clawing back a two goal deficit to get a draw with Motherwell. What do you think has contributed to this 'mini slump?' There has been a wealth of factors contributing to our recent struggle in the last few games. First of all, Murty’s tactical inexperience has cost us, especially when it comes down to making changes which was on display in the Old Firm when Jozo Simunovic was sent off, ultimately costing Rangers the game as Murty chose not to expose the man down by bringing on a striker and pushing for more. Another factor which has contributed has been the injury of David Bates, forcing a back pair of Martin and Alves who have been nothing short of frauds since pairing up together. Rangers now find themselves three points behind Aberdeen in the league with Hibs breathing down your neck. It's going to be a tasty run in for who finishes second but can you see Rangers being that team? It’s tough to say at the moment. If we don't make changes in tactics and formation then it'll be a miracle if we get any wins post-split. If we see a revival in the form previous to the Old Firm (game) then I feel we should finish second by beating Aberdeen once more. There is plenty of speculation around Graeme Murty and if he will be the club's long-term manager. What's your take on this? Would he be your choice or is there another name you have in mind? Personally, I do not have a specific candidate in mind. However, I just do not want to see Murty in the dugout next season. As much of a nice guy he is, his tactical inexperience has ultimately cost Rangers points. I feel there is still a lot of learning for Murty before he can even be considered as a real candidate for the job on a permanent basis. There would also have to be a major turn around from Murty if he was to stand a chance of getting the supporters back on-board. Ross McCrorie is one player that has impressed me when I've seen him play. Can we see him making an appearance on Saturday? Ross has returned to full training and was available for selection for the trip to Motherwell. I do not expect him to start and be thrown in straight away however he may make an appearance in the later stages of the match off the bench. Also, with Jordan Rossiter returning to full fitness he may be given the nod over McCrorie by Murty. You've seen the good and bad sides of Dundee this season with a win against us at Ibrox and a defeat at Dens? What's your take on our current team and league position? Dundee have been a side who have vastly underperformed this season however look likely to stave off relegation for another season and a team who have quality in the midfield with the likes of Kamara, Spence and McGowan, as well as carrying the threat of Simon Murray. They have also pulled off some unbelievable signings bringing in Premier League experience in the form of Caulker and a Europa League winner Aurtenetxe. Murty had managed two, loss two against Dundee. Can Rangers end their run of three matches without a win and get a victory over us or will Dundee build on taking points off of Hearts and Celtic and ease our relegation fears? I do feel we have enough quality to claim all three points and expect us to do so, however, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a 0-0 draw or even a loss as we have struggled to break teams down at home who have sat back and I expect Dundee to do just that and hit us on the counter.

    O'Hara Hoping to Build On Fridays Win

    O’Hara struck twice in the second half, either side of Josh Windass’ goal, to give Dundee their first win in seven games and lift them off the bottom of the table. The midfielder has now scored in all three ties with the Gers at Dens since his arrival last summer and his double made it four in total. “I don’t know what it is about Rangers, but long may it continue,” said O’Hara. “That can be the result that turns the tide – it’s a massive win for us.” “There’s something special about a win on a Friday night, under the lights, live on the telly. The place is buzzing just now and hopefully we can continue it next Saturday against Ross County. “Psychologically, getting off the bottom is massive. Nobody likes to be down there. We’ve got a brilliant squad in there and we shouldn’t be where we are, so it’s now time for us to be looking up rather than down.” Friday also seen Scott Allan show Dundee fans what they have been missing from the injured playmaker with a pinpoint pass to set up the winner. “You could see Scott’s quality in his assist on Friday. It’s brilliant to have him back,” proclaimed O’Hara. “He’s had a hard time of it with injuries over the last couple of months but he’s going to be an asset to the team in the coming weeks. “It’s great to know when you make runs that somebody is going to pick it out. He has done that over the years, he’s somebody who is going to play the killer pass, and that’s something we’ve been lacking. “We’ve been playing good football but there hasn’t been penetration. “That’s Scott’s game – he’s going to find the killer ball.”
  19. It has now been well over a month since the Mexican manager flunked at Rangers in a hail of controversy. The Rangers board decided after only 8 months that it wasn’t going to work out for both manager and club and after just 229 days in charge, Caixinha became the shortest ever serving manager for this born again Glasgow side. Rangers were then on the look out for a replacement. It seemed for a short time that the post would be going to Alex McLeish, with the former Rangers manager telling the Ibrox Board in October that they have ‘Got my number’ only for just a week later stating that he wasn’t on the verge of returning to his previous post as the Rangers manager. Rangers then turned their attention to the Aberdeen boss for the job, but it seems that this has been a farce with 'will he or won’t he' be taking the job, and it seems that Derek McInnes has always been insisting he is going nowhere and will be staying at his post at Aberdeen. However, this hasn't deterred Rangers in the least and they still seemingly have Derek McInnes as their number one target, with the bookies having him favourite to take over the reins at Ibrox any day now. However, it isn’t clear whether or not Rangers have actually approached the Aberdeen board or Derek McInnes for that matter regarding the move to Glasgow, it could very well be more than nothing but west coast media paper talk getting the sharks into a frenzy at the smell of blood. McInnes has even been quoted in saying that he isn’t interested in the Ger’s job. “I want to reiterate what the chairman said. I speak to him every other day and relationships are key to me. He wanted to put something out, he spoke to me about it, and I was happy for him to do that. I have never been one who feels the need to react to speculation and I don’t see how I can pick and choose. I’m getting asked all the time about this job or that job. A month ago I was asked about the Scotland job and I answered one question about it, so everyone was happy with that. Has it angered me? Not initially because you can’t control the speculation, and in the past I have usually answered it and we have moved on." While McInnes is defiantly the ‘bookies’ favourite, there seems to be a late and surprising up and coming runner for the job, the Bookies now have Ex-Rangers man Neil McCann second favourite, slashing the odds from 40/1 down to 9/2. This could either mean that a lot of people have been placing bets on Dark Blues manager hoping to make a little killing or Rangers have contacted Dundee in trying to sound him out for the post. There has been quite a bit of talk by Rangers fans who would like to see McCann take the trip from Dundee down to Glasgow, for no other reason than he is supposed to be a Rangers man through and through. For some reason playing for Rangers is the only prerequisite for getting the manager’s job for many of the light blues fans. I find it strange that when it came down to the nitty gritty, McCann choose to come out of retirement to help Dundee Football Club. His goal against Raith Rovers to help secure Dundee ‘s division one status after the club were docked 25 points, will forever keep McCann a legend with the Dark Blues support. He then put his job at Sky on hold to come to the Dark Blues rescue again and secured the club’s premier status when it looked assured Dundee would be playing Championship football again this season. For some time after, it looked as if McCann would return to his Sky job as he hesitated but finally found the lure of managing the side which started his career over twenty five years ago too much to walk away from. Neil McCann has just started his managerial journey and is by all standards, still a rookie learning his trade. His time as assistant manager at Dunfermline will have helped him immensely, but he still has a lot to learn and after only 6 months in charge full-time, is only starting to get Dundee on the right track. The football at Dens is night and day since McCann has taken over, the drab defensive playing for a draw style which Hartley had us playing is long gone. McCann has brought in a new attacking philosophy which didn’t look like it was going to work at first. The Dark Blues were shipping goals at an alarming rate and were stuck to the bottom of the table. The club 12 team which when down in season 2013 had more points at this stage. Unlike our previous manager, McCann realised that he had to change things around and swap around personal if we are to have a chance, and this seems to be working. Two clean sheets and unbeaten in the last three games with wins against Rangers and Ross county away from home. If you ask any Dundee Fan if they’re happy with the football this season, most will say they are enjoying the what McCann is serving, but are not happy at the results and the stream of bad luck we have been on the receiving end from the start of the season. While the club under McCann is heading in the right direction, he is no means the finished article and there is still a long way to go between now and the end of the season, and we are still in the precarious position of those relegation spots. Will Rangers go for a manager that has only been in the job for a couple of minutes or will they be looking for a manager with a proven record at this level? If they wish to continue this debacle of stumbling from one catastrophe to another, then they may probably try and make McCann their manager. I’m just not sure how long the Ibrox faithful would willing to give McCann before turning on him if things didn’t work out as expected. As Dundee fan, I just hope and pray that Neil McCann has a lot more sense and realises that the Rangers managerial seat is nothing more than a poison chalice and a hot bed of controversially, and at this time and point of his managerial career changing from Dundee to Glasgow could possibly do more damage to his reputation in the long run and end what seems to be a promising start to his managerial career.

    Dundee 2 - 1 Rangers

  21. “It’s part and parcel now of everyday life - even when I’m about Glasgow. I still get pelters there as well so it was nothing I wasn’t expecting. “I’m delighted that within two minutes later I managed my own reaction. “The hassle is part of football and you learn to live with it. It’s fine. Should it be part of football? It is in this country, so it is what it is. I don’t know if it motivates me, but it gives you a more enjoyable reaction when you win after it. “For me I’m just happy to be back fit helping the boys to a win.” Allan has been out of action since the start of October following an operation on his groin and only made his comeback in Dundee’s 0-0 draw with Kilmarnock at Dens the other week. Now the playmaker wants to knuckle down to get the team moving up the league and also rekindle the type of form he had shown early on in his Dundee career. “I’m just happy to be back. It’s been a frustrating couple of months because previous to the groin operation I hadn’t been playing like myself. “I thought I started well when I came in at Dundee and it was disappointing not to kick on because of the groin problem. I’m happy I’ve got it sorted and feel fighting fit now. “My last game was Kilmarnock away at the end of September. I’m delighted to get back on the park and to get a win against Rangers is a bonus.” “We don’t want to be near the bottom of the league, obviously, because we think we have a good enough squad to be up there in the top six, I would say. “This result is something to build on now. “We need to go and get a result next weekend now (away to Ross County). “We do need to build on it, though, because it can’t be a case of ‘Oh, it’s a win against Rangers’ and then we don’t win our other matches. “I was delighted, mainly for the manager and his assistant but also for all the boys because I think there have been some great performances without the wins. “So it’s been up and down but we need some momentum now.”
