The 2011–12 season was Dundee's seventh consecutive season in the Scottish First Division, having been relegated from the Scottish Premier League at the end of the 2004–05 season.[2] Dundee also competed in the Challenge Cup, League Cup and the Scottish Cup. Dundee was promoted to the Scottish Premier League at the end of the campaign after Rangers' liquidation meant a 2nd-place finish was enough to be promoted.

Summary[edit]

Dundee finished second in the First Division.[3] They reached the second round of the Challenge Cup,[4] the second round of the League Cup[5] and the fourth round of the Scottish Cup.[6]
