St Johnstone chiefs have confirmed McDiarmid Park has been selected as an alternate for the match between Dundee and Rangers.

The Scottish Premiership fixture - which was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch twice - could be moved to Perth should the surface fail an inspection this week.

The match was first set to be played on March 17 and then on April 10 before being rescheduled to April 17.

Now, a pitch inspection will be carried out tomorrow by match referee Don Robertson to determine whether the pitch will be playable or not.

Should it be deemed unplayable or likely unplayable then the match will be moved to McDiarmid Park.

Supporters from both clubs will be able to attend the match with their ticket for Dens Park in the event the fixture is moved.
