Rangers won't take ticket allocation for Utd tie

Rangers won't take ticket allocation for Utd tie

Rangers chief executive Charles Green released a statement tonight confirming that Rangers will not take their ticket allocation for the Scottish Cup tie against Dundee United. In a statement, Mr Green said:

He said: "Rangers Football Club will not be taking its allocation of tickets for the forthcoming Scottish Cup match against Dundee United at Tannadice. This is a unanimous decision by the board, senior management and staff at Ibrox. Everyone at this club is dismayed at the actions of certain SPL clubs, which were actively engaged in trying to harm Rangers when we were in a perilous situation and we are acutely aware of their attitude to us.

Not all clubs who voted against Rangers returning to the SPL fall into that category and indeed we made Motherwell very welcome when we played them at Ibrox in the League Cup competition recently. However, feelings remain very raw and it should be no surprise that we as a club feel this way.

It is unsurprising too that there has been a reaction from our supporters to this particular fixture. The last thing we as a club want to do is to compromise security arrangements for any match. I therefore appeal to all fans not to travel to this match and to Dundee United not to sell tickets to Rangers supporters. Our only regret is that this turn of events will not assist Ally McCoist and the team in what will be a very difficult fixture.

We should make clear that the Club, the manager and the players all look forward to a situation where Rangers fans attend every match to support the team. The fans are our greatest asset."

Vital Rangers is 100% behind Charles Green in this decision. Dundee United made it clear how they felt about Rangers and had no problems kicking us when we were down. Why should we line their pockets after what they have done to us. Well done Mr Green. Meanwhile, on the subject of the cup, here is confirmation of the draw:

Raith Rovers v Celtic or Arbroath
St Mirren v Cowdenbeath or St Johnstone
Dunfermline Athletic v Dumbarton or Hamilton Academical
Hibernian v Aberdeen or Motherwell
Falkirk v Forfar Athletic
Dundee United v Rangers
Dundee v Turriff United or Greenock Morton
Kilmarnock v Ross County or Inverness Caledonian Thistle

Ties to be played on the weekend of 2/3 February
