Dundee United welcome Rangers to Tannadice Park for Craig Levein’s first game in charge of the Arabs.
Rock bottom of the SPL, United are in need of a victory to boost the confidence and hopefully left them off the foot of the table.
It’s a tough first game for Levein, any game against the Old Firm is always tough but at least we can see what Levein is made of and we will see if he can motivate the players.
Rangers will be boosted by their UEFA Cup win against Maccabi Haifa on Thursday but the league form has been poor and in recent years, Dundee United have had a good record against them in the league.
The first meeting of the two sides came back in August and it was a thriller. United took a shock 2-0 lead at Ibrox but Paul le Guen’s men battled back to draw 2-2.
This is bound to be an interesting game and if you can’t make it along to Tannadice then you can watch it live on Setanta Sports.
