Rangers’ 2-0 defeat in their Scottish Cup quarter-final replay against Aberdeen at Ibrox on Tuesday night all but guaranteed there will be no silverware for Steven Gerrard’s side this season.
The climax to the season is fast approaching with both clubs in Dundee playing for incredibly-high stakes.
We find ourselves in a new year and I want to wish everyone a good one.
With Dundee United’s takeover getting confirmed on Wednesday, that’s both the city clubs now owned by people with no long-standing connection with them.
The whole situation with Billy Dodds possibly becoming the new assistant manager at Dundee has been nothing short of farcical.
John Nelms gave a very positive spin on Dundee’s current form and predicament after the sixth league defeat in a row against Hibs.
There were obviously two completely contrasting results from Scotland’s double header against Belgium on Friday night in a friendly at Hampden and the Monday evening Nations League outing with Albania at the same venue.
We are all agreed Dundee need a goalscorer and Kenny Miller is certainly one of them.
The whole Jack Hamilton episode has made me conclude that Dundee are looking at a trade-off.
Everyone connected with football in Scotland is licking their lips in anticipation as the respective Ladbrokes league campaigns kick off on Saturday – and I am no different.
