Philippe Clement reveals extent of Rangers half-time fury as outburst inspires Dundee comeback

Philippe Clement has told of the extent of his anger as Rangers trailed Dundee at half-time before coming fighting back in the second half.

The Light Blues were poor in the opening 45 minutes as their visitors raced into a two-goal lead with quick fire goals from Jordan McGhee and Antonio Portales. Ross McCausland started the comeback before the half was out and that put a better slant on things but the Belgian was still furious.

He hadn't seen enough from his players out of possession during the first half and made that clear to them in the dressing room during the break. It seemed to have the desired affect as they quickly equalised through Cyriel Dessers before Todd Cantwell and a Scott Wright double made things comfortable from what had been a worrying position.

Speaking after full time, Clement told BBC Sportsound: "I was angry. Because they didn't reward themselves. I was very angry because we had good intentions with the ball but not enough without the ball.

"We need to stand up in that way and show more of what we did in the second half and then you see that we play really good offensive football and really aggressive football. But it's with and without the ball so it's big lessons to take from that and to continue working on those things the next 10 days for these two games.

"And then to work towards next season to get more consistency and the aggressiveness is there all the time. It cannot be that it comes when I'm angry, it needs to come out of the team."

The three points delays Celtic being crowned champions for at least 24 hours and the two Glasgow rivals still have a Scottish Cup to fight it out for. Asked if he believes the season can still be a successful one for Rangers, Clement added: "If I see where the club was six months ago I think we are a lot of steps further now. And we're going to work really hard to get the most out of these two games and go full for that."
