Rangers win Dundee compo appeal after postponed clash chaos over Dens pitch

Rangers have won their compo battle with Dundee who will have to stump up an expenses bill following the pitch chaos last season.

The Ibrox outfit had their squad and staff travel through to Dens Park for their Premiership clash towards the end of the campaign but they were left reeling after the game was called off for weather. That saw Gers book their players into a hotel and the cost incurred will be billed to the Dees after a claim was made by club chiefs.

Dundee were left frustrated and told how they should not have to make any payment after already being slapped with a £186,000 bill by the SPFL, upheld by the SFA after appeal.

And now they've suffered more bad news, according to the Scottish Sun, who say the ruling went in Rangers' favour.

It comes after the Dees were also on the receiving end of a defeat in another ruling with St Johnstone being owed £15,000 for McDiarmid Park being scheduled as an initial alternative venue over the risk of a SIXTH postponement last term.

The club have already embarked on a pricey revamp of their ground to avoid any further bills down the line should more postponements be necessary.
