Dundee United’s trip to Ibrox this weekend to face Rangers in the Scottish Premiership is in serious doubt after the Tannadice side were forced to cancel training as they await the outcome of PCR tests.

Thomas Courts’ side lost to Livingston last weekend and headed to Newcastle for their Christmas night out before a positive test today forced their training session to be scrapped.

If there are a number of further positive tests in the coming days, it could likely see the Terrors unable to field a team to face Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s Rangers on Sunday afternoon.

A number of clubs have been hit with Covid issues in recent days with several Premier League sides south of the border having to cancel games, including Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

In Scotland, there have been continued problems with Hibs recently having to pull the plug in several games after an outbreak at Easter Road left the Hibees short of players to face Ross County and Livingston.

With only a few days until Dundee United are due to head to Ibrox, a postponement this weekend would leave both clubs scrambling to find a date to reschedule the game.
