'You can't blame the weather' - Clement on latest Dundee postponement

Rangers manager Philippe Clement has told Dundee they cannot blame the weather for the "crazy situation" at Dens Park.

Their rearranged Scottish Premiership game was called off on Wednesday after a second pitch inspection.

The Dens Park surface was deemed playable by referee Don Robertson at around 11am, however, heavy rain followed and he was forced to postpone it once again with four hours until kick-off.

The game has now been rescheduled for April 17 at 8pm, and Clement is adamant it has to go ahead even if it means moving to another venue.

"We cannot put the blame on the weather because on the same evening a local team played in Dundee and the pitch of Dundee United is perfect," he told Sky Sports News.

"So we cannot say it's because of the weather, but we don't have any guarantee that it will not rain next week

"I think the game of football has been played for more than 100 years in rain, for sure in Scotland.

"We will hear by 12pm on Tuesday where we will play on Wednesday, but for sure there needs to be a certainty to play on Wednesday.

"We already have an important cup game on Sunday, so to play later than Wednesday would be crazy. We already have a totally different preparation for this semi-final so that's a disadvantage for us without us making a fault."
