Steven Gerrard’s bid to retain the Scottish championship got off to the perfect start at the weekend as Rangers not only thumped Livingston 3-0 at Ibrox, but Celtic endured a pitiful curtain raiser in the capital, losing 2-1 to Heart of Midlothian right at the death.

Focus for the Gers may be on that season-defining Champions League third qualifying round against Malmo on Tuesday, in which the Glaswegians trail 2-1 from the first leg in Sweden, but Gerrard will be making sure his charges are pumped up for the journey to Tannadice on Saturday.

Tam Courts’ Tangerines endured a 2-0 reversal against Aberdeen at Pittodrie for their first match, but they will be hoping to fare slightly better away from the Granite City, returning to familiar pastures as they host the national champions, a club against whom they have not beaten in the league since 2012.

Dundee United vs Rangers: Match Stats

Last season’s ‘Invincibles’ conformed to stereotype in their opening game, not only keeping a clean sheet, having conceded just 13 goals in 2020/21, but they also bagged thrice to give their supporters an early indication of their intent to retain their crown. They came just eight goals shy of notching a century last term.

Summer recruit Fashion Sakala started but failed to open his account at Ibrox, though Gerrard will feel confident of the Zambia international getting up and running against a side they fired 10 past last term. Sakala joins Rangers having bagged 16 goals in all competitions for KV Oostende in the Belgian top flight last season.
