SFA to pay outstanding cup monies to Dundee Utd

The Scottish Football Association have informed Dundee United that they will receive £35,000 of the outstanding money owed to them from their William Hill Scottish Cup tie against Rangers.

The Scottish Football Association have informed Dundee United that they will receive £35,000 of the outstanding money owed to them from their William Hill Scottish Cup tie against Rangers.

United are thought to be demanding around £67,000 from ticket sales for the meeting between the sides at Ibrox in February, before the Gers entered administration.

The matter is subject to a ruling by the SFA's judiciary panel which will take place in April.

However, a sum of cash from broadcasting revenue - which would normally have been distributed to the Scottish champions - will be paid into the Tannadice club's coffers instead.

An SFA statement confirmed: "The Scottish FA has notified Dundee United that they will this week receive £35,000 of the outstanding money from their William Hill Scottish Cup tie against Rangers in February.

"This money will help meet part of the overdue payable to the club and has been offset from broadcasting revenue from the competition that, under normal circumstances, would have been distributed to Rangers.

"The Scottish FA has informed both clubs."
