Scottish Cup: Jackie McNamara plays down Dundee United's favourites tag v Rangers
Dundee United boss Jackie McNamara does not believe his team are overwhelming favourites to beat Rangers on Saturday.

The teams clash in the first Scottish Cup semi-final at Ibrox, which will be a neutral venue for the occasion.
Rangers go into the match on the back of a Ramsdens Cup final defeat to Raith Rovers, and with their manager Ally McCoist under fire from fans of the League One club.
McNamara believes the reaction to that result has been over the top, as the only other defeat for Rangers this season came in the first round of the League Cup after extra-time at Forfar.
"I think everything's changed over the past few weeks because they had a bad result at the weekend, losing the Ramsdens Cup final, but I think everybody jumped on the bandwagon with that," McNamara said.
"I don't read anything into that. I've watched them a number of times this season and of late. They've only lost two games in all competitions and they've been in extra-time.
"We know that we are going to have to be at our best to win this match."
