Rangers will host Dundee United on Saturday at Ibrox as they look to continue their charge to retain the Scottish Premiership title.

Despite being led by Giovanni van Bronckhorst now, the Light Blues have continued with their fine form and have managed to keep a gap between them and Old Firm rivals, Celtic, at the top that will allow for one bad performance.

However, according to the price that has been offered by the Betway Sportsbook of 1/5, it would seem there is no chance of the Gers slipping up against Dundee United this upcoming weekend. Indeed, Rangers are valued as firm favourites in this encounter.

Naturally, their form at the top of the Scottish Premiership will have made them the team that is impossible to look past, however the fixture at Ibrox might not necessarily go all their own way.

Dundee United have been one of the surprise packages of the season in the 21/22 Scottish Premiership campaign, as they are performing above expectations at the moment.

But, with that said, they have really struggled with form in recent weeks. Dundee United last win in the league came back in November when they defeated Aberdeen, but since then, they have had one draw and gone on a run that has seen them suffer three defeats on the bounce, as Motherwell, Celtic and Livingston all recorded victories.

To further compound the misery, the three defeats also saw them fail to score a goal in either of those matches.

Rangers will certainly want to maintain their position at the top of the table and Van Bronckhorst’s men will take no prisoners with their performance at the weekend. They will be at a disadvantage, though, as they will have to go through a midweek obstacle as they went up against St. Johnstone; a fixture that has had to be rearranged and played recently instead of when it was initially scheduled to take place in Matchday 14.

With the match against Dundee United being one of the final games of the first phase of the Scottish Premiership season, the Light Blues can ill afford to take their foot off the gas, especially with Borussia Dortmund coming up in the next stage of the UEFA Europa League, which is the new, knockout play-off round of the competition.
