Kris Boyd clashes with Rangers boss Philippe Clement's Dundee 'reaction' claim

Kris Boyd wasn't having Philippe Clement's assessment of Rangers' performance at Dundee.

The Belgian gaffer insisted that his side bossed the game at Dens Park and they reacted in every aspect except for the result. The Light Blues followed up their Dingwall upset by Ross County with further dropped points as Celtic got another big boost in the title race with Brendan Rodgers' men now three points clear with the same amount of games played and a superior goal difference. Clement insists his team had enough chances to win the game on Tayside, but that is an assessment Boyd was not having in the Sky Sports studio.

Asked by host Eilidh Barbour if he agreed with the assessment of the 90 minutes, Boyd said: "No I don't think in the terms of the chances created. I didn't really see any clear-cut. Rangers got into plenty of good positions in the pitch. Fabio Silva I touched on in the first-half, there was one in the second as well and he was sleeping. When you get into those positions as a forward player you've got to get on the move and make up the mind up of your winger.

"I said it at the weekend, Rangers can't depend on one player coming back and making a difference. It has to be better. You can't go to Ross County and get beat. You can't come here tonight and draw when you are in a title race. Listen, full credit to Ross County and Dundee but Rangers have got to be a lot better than they are.

"You are talking about big players stepping up. Cantwell, what has he done tonight again? Lawrence? You are looking for more. I think Sima - yes he is coming back from injury - but yo are looking for more. Kemar Roofe, again, he's not played football in a long time but Rangers never really created anything for him. He's a penalty box striker, if you get the ball in there he has shown he will score goals. Desseres came on and it didn't really work. From a forward point of view the substitutions were poor. Rangers have got problems at this moment in time."

Barbour then asked how Clement goes about fixing the issues, Sutton joked: "Prays. Starts praying." He then continued: "I have been really impressed with Philippe Clement up until sort of now. I don't know what game he was watching to call Dundee lucky. They were not lucky.

"He did say Rangers lacked a spark and people should not jump to conclusions. The conclusion is in a huge game, a huge couple of games Rangers have had they've not stepped up when they need to most. It's come to the business end of the season and they needed to build momentum and they are losing it as this moment in time.

"We know second is last in Glasgow. We saw the reaction of the Rangers fans at the end. They are not happy. He's got this Rangers team back into a title race, then all of a sudden they are crumbling."
