The amount that Dundee are likely to be fined if found guilty of breaching SPFL rules can be revealed.

Yesterday was the fifth time the club has had a game postponed at Dens Park due to the poor condition of the pitch.

Referee Don Robertson conducted two pitch inspections on Wednesday ahead of Dundee's scheduled Premiership game with Rangers - a match that had already been called off once.

However, the Scottish FA official deemed the surface to be waterlogged at 3.30pm yesterday afternoon, and so the game was called off.

It will now be played next Wednesday on April 17 with an 8pm kick-off in the City of Discovery.

Rangers slammed Dundee for their 'negligence and unprofessionalism' in failing to get the game played, and the SPFL confirmed the Dens club is under investigation over disciplinary matters.

Due to a precedent set in 2010 with Motherwell, it seems likely that Dundee will be fined at least £50,000 should they be found guilty over the handling of their playing surface by the league's governing body.

The Fir Park side were slapped with a fine of £50k over the horrendous condition of their pitch 14 years ago.

There was some leniency provided to the Steelmen though, as the league recognised that they had invested heavily in a new undersoil heating system and pitch in order to try to improve it. And so, £45,000 of the fine was suspended.

Dundee doesn't have that same luxury in terms of the level of investment they put into their playing surface this season, although social media posts have emerged to show that the pitch was indeed new for this season.

It seems highly likely they will face at least a £50k fine, but it could potentially be higher due to inflation and differing circumstances.
