Dundee United v Rangers
Moan out of the way first: I'm not sure Scottish football is playing to those strengths it still
has by scheduling a cup final and an Edinburgh derby on the same day.
But that's just the way it is.
So we get on with it.
Before the blood pressure starts to rise in Auld Reekie, Saturday sees an abbreviated SPL schedule.
The whirligig that is international week has left me struggling for time as we approach the mundane
predictability of the SPL.
So this week's SPL preview has been drawn entirely at random.
Not by me.
I've shipped in a glamorous assistant, a glamorous assistant who is the number one draw every
Wednesday night at a "gentleman's club" cabaret in Newcastle.
Rangers fit in their first, and only, trundle to Tannadice of this much chopped and changed season
just before the SPL-it.
Making hay while the sun shone on Celtic at Hampden, Rangers went top on Saturday with a 2-1 win
over St Mirren. They can extend that lead to four points this evening, although Celtic will have
two games in hand.
