Glasgow Rangers Fans In Offer To Ease Debt Crisis

But Dundee United, who are also owed money by the Gers, will not receive any payout for money they are owed.
The fund, set up by Rangers supporters to help the club after it was placed in administration last month, has broken the £250,000 barrier after fans pledged their donations.
RFFF chairman Andrew McCormick said: “After some discussion, it was agreed that we should use some of the money collected by our fans to pay off this outstanding debt. This is a debt of honour to a club of honour.”
United knocked Rangers out of the Scottish Cup by 2-0 at Ibrox
United are owed money from tickets sold for the Scottish Cup tie between the clubs on 5 February.
“Rangers fans were angry last season when Dundee United levied an extra charge on Rangers ticket holders if they wished to attend an abandoned game at Tannadice,” explained McCormick.
The RFFF announcement comes the day before a Scottish Football Association tribunal meets to consider charges against Rangers and owner Craig Whyte.
