Rangers will hope to use the high of their stunning victory over Borussia Dortmund in midweek to see off Dundee United on Sunday.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst's side stunned the German's 4-2 in the Europa League on Thursday, bagging all four goals in 16 minutes either side of half-time to completely blow Dortmund away.

That win was Rangers' fourth on the trot and they'll be looking to extend that to five against a Dundee United side who have recovered from a winter slump to go on their own run of four games without defeat.

Here's all you need to know about this one.

Dundee United team news

Tam Courts has no fitness issues to worry about and can therefore select his strongest possible lineup for this one.

Up top, leading scorer Nicky Clark will be hoping to come back into the starting lineup alongside former Celtic man Tony Watt.


Rangers team news

Given their dominance against Dortmund, it's hard to see Rangers making too many changes to their lineup, particularly when they have no new enforced absences either.

Van Bronckhorst remains without playmaker Ianis Hagi, who is recovering from a knee injury.

Dundee United vs Rangers head-to-head record

Dundee United are one of just two sides to have actually beaten Rangers this season, securing a 1-0 victory at home in the second week of the campaign.

Rangers got their revenge in December, winning 1-0 themselves courtesy of a penalty from captain James Tavernier - their fourth victory in their last five meetings with Dundee United.

This season has been quite low-scoring for these two, but 2020/21 brought a whole lot of goals. Rangers netted ten in their three games, with Dundee United responding with two of their own.


Dundee United vs Rangers score prediction

Dundee United are in the kind of form you need to be in when you face Rangers, but Van Bronckhorst's men are just looking so dangerous right now.

Their victory over Dortmund was a massive statement and one which sent shockwaves around Europe, let alone Scotland, and the Gers will fancy their chances of coming out on top in this one as well.

This should be a good game, but expect Rangers to run out comfortable winners.

Prediction: Dundee United 0-2 Rangers
