Rangers captain James Tavernier spoke to reporters ahead of his side's clash with Dundee on Sunday, and highlighted how this month's hectic schedule is actually a luxury for his club, as quoted by Sky Sports.

The Gers currently sit in second spot in the Scottish Premiership table, but they will be bitterly disappointed after losing Sunday's crunch game with Aberdeen at Ibrox.

"We have the luxury of this month being so busy and [after] dropping points against Aberdeen, now we can get back to winning ways."

Rangers face Celtic at the end of this month, and they will be determined to head into the Old Firm clash ahead of their bitter rivals.

The ideal place to start will be three points at Dens Park on Sunday, but with Dundee fighting for their lives, it will be far from easy for Gerrard's men.
