Rangers are back in Scottish Premier League action on Sunday, when they travel to Sannadice Park to take on Dundee United.

Steven Gerrard's side are in a strong position at the top of the league, but the Rangers manager will be intent on his side continuing their intensity and form into the second half of the season.

Rangers are 13 points ahead of Celtic at the top of the table, even though they have played two games more than their Glasgow rivals.

In midweek, Rangers confirmed top spot in the Europa League group with a 2-0 away win over Lech Poznan, in a game where Gerrard gave a few first-team players a well-deserved rest.

Last week in the league, Rangers were dominant as well, as they managed a 4-0 win away at Ross County. Gerrard's men have not dropped points in the league since September.

Dundee United are currently sixth in the league. Last weekend, they were at the wrong end of a 2-0 scoreline against Livingston.
