Mohamed Diomande and Ridvan Yilmaz will remain sidelined for Rangers against Dundee.

The Ibrox duo were not involved in the 3-2 loss to Ross County at the weekend through injury.

And Philippe Clement has confirmed the pair will remain out for the trip to Dens Park.

The Rangers manager also revealed Leon Balogun won't be fully fit for the fixture having battled a sickness bug during the week.

Clement explained:ย "Ridvan Yilmaz and Mohamed Diomande won't be ready for tomorrow, Leon Balogun has been sick the past few days so he is not totally fit.

"It is about others stepping up when players are out."

Pushed on the fitness of Yilmaz, Clement added: "Ridvan Yilmaz will be back relatively soon, he is training individually on pitch but not back with the squad yet."

On the decision for the match to go ahead at Dens Park after previous issues with the surface, Clement stated: "Those who have decided the game will go ahead are sure it will take place at Dens Park tomorrow.

"They are aware of the forecast and are sure the pitch will cope with that."

Reflecting on defeat at the weekend, Clement said:ย "We can only focus on ourselves and our football - we were unhappy with our performance at the weekend. The players were disappointed in themselves but it is important we stick together.

"We have debriefed on what went wrong and how we can make it better again.

"Every manager has these moments, even with teams that win. It is part of the game, it is not something you want - but the important thing is how you react and I have a good feeling around that."
