Rangers manager Philippe Clement has explained an accident is to blame for the 45 minute delay ahead of the Scottish Premiership clash with Dundee.
Speaking in a post-match press conference, Philippe Clement explained that the Rangers team bus was forced to drive for two hours due to issues on the road into Dens Park.
Rangers had been stationed in St Andrews ahead of the game against Dundee but due to an accident the club’s players were made to wait on reaching the city.
As a result, the kick off time was moved from 19:45GMT to 20:30GMT but the delay to proceedings was only the start on a dramatic night for Philippe Clement’s side.
“We leave always early so that we are at in the stadium at least one and a half hours before the game, normally one hour 45,” Philippe Clement told the post-match press conference.
“We don’t take any risks. Our kitman also comes before us so they will tell us if there’s trouble on the roads. He got here within 20 minutes and it took us more than two hours because of an accident.
“We drove more than two hours because of an accident. That’s life. You cannot control that. You need to stay calm and focused. All the players did that. There was no stress or something on the bus.
“We came here and had a talk with the coaches of Dundee and went to start with the referee about when to start. Everything was really correct.
