Philippe Clement Puts Forward New Solution to Dundee Saga

Philippe Clement has hinted at the possibility of playing their postponed Scottish Premiership clash against Dundee behind closed doors.

This decision comes after frustrations soared following the second postponement of the Gers’ match at Dens Park this season, citing a waterlogged pitch as the primary reason for the delay. Expressing their discontent, Rangers took the step of dispatching a formal letter to the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL), raising concerns over what they perceive as Dundee’s “negligence and unprofessionalism” in Scotland’s top-flight football.

In a statement made during a press conference on Thursday (11 April), captured by PLZ Soccer, Clement conveyed the club’s willingness to adapt to any situation in order to secure the three points they covet. He stated, “If that is the decision, we will play behind closed doors. If they ask us to play on Mars, we go to Mars and we take the flight. To win the three points, it’s about that. That’s our mindset.”

This declaration underscores Rangers’ commitment to resolving the fixture backlog, with the manager’s words echoing the determination of the club to navigate through the challenges posed by the unpredictable Scottish weather and scheduling uncertainties.
