Philippe Clement reckons Rangers were the "boss" of Dundee but "luck" wasn't on their side after watching their Scottish Premiership title dream take another major hit after a drab draw at Dens Park. 

Rangers had the chance to go within touching distance of the league's summit, but after dropping points in their previous two matches against Celtic and Ross County, they continued their recent slump by only mustering a 0-0 stalemate with newly-promoted, Dundee. 

Clement's team had 17 shots at goal during the rescheduled clash in the City of Discovery, yet only a handful were on target. Despite that, the Rangers manager thinks he saw enough for the Light Blues to have won the game. 

"About the result you can say (we didn't get a reaction), but on the other things we did get the reaction," the Belgian told Sky Sports.

"We were the boss today all game. They kept a structure and they created enough chances to win the game, but the ball didn't go in. That's the story of today. 

"There was a good goalkeeper on the other side also who made a few good saves, they saved a few balls on the line. So, that part of luck was not on our side and because of that you don't get a result."

He continued: "Of course you can do details better but you play against a team who are man marking all over the pitch, wherever you go so there's not much space. 

"You need to be decisive and we had enough chances to kill the game off, but yeah, there were a few times they were really lucky in their defensive way, good goalkeeper saves. 

"We need to take that moments and today we didn't have the spark to make the big difference or when it happened there was somebody standing on the line to block the shot or header."
