Ally McCoist has torn into Dundee over their latest call-off due to a waterlogged pitch at Dens Park.

Tony Docherty's side were scheduled to host Rangers in the City of Discovery last night, with the game due to be beamed to Sky Sports' far and wide audience.

A pitch inspection was passed at 11am yesterday morning, however, after an agreement with the clubs, referee Don Robertson conducted a secondary inspection at 3.30pm after some heavy rainfall.

It was at this point the Scottish FA official felt the surface was sodden and waterlogged, thus making it unsafe for the players, so the game was postponed for a second time.

It's the fifth game to have been called off at Dens this season, with the club facing disciplinary action from the SPFL over the matter.

The game will be played next Wednesday night, with the post-split fixtures hinging on the result with Dundee holding the potential to finish in the top six.

McCosit has branded the situation an 'absolute shambles,' as the Gers legend took aim at Dundee over their troublesome emails.

McCoist said on talkSPORT: "It was a shambles. Absolute shambles. I don't know what's going on there at Dundee.

"Their pitch is waterlogged, they're still not getting their emails and all that stuff - it's some carry-on up there."

The dig was in reference too the 2019/20 league season being called early by SPFL clubs.

Initially, Dundee had voted in favour of continuing to play the season, upon it being safe to do so in line with Covid regulations. 

However, they then dramatically changed their mind, with their original vote going AWOL in their emails, and so the season ended with Celtic crowned champions.

With Rangers fighting to stay in touch with Celtic for the league title at the time under Steven Gerrard, it's a situation that still rankles with some fans and those at the club.
