Tangerines seek clarification

Tangerines seek clarification

Dundee United have called for SFA clarification over Rangers' planned boycott of tickets for their Scottish Cup fifth round clash at Tannadice in early February.

Rangers have insisted they are to absolutely refuse their ticket allocation for the tie as a protest against the Tangerines opposing their recent application to join the SPL. As a result the SFA are to meet on Thursday to fully discuss the issue.

"It is with huge disappointment that we read both the content and tone of the statement from Rangers, stating that they will not be taking any tickets for our Scottish Cup tie in February and urging their supporters not to attend," read a club statement released on United's official website. "However, we do not intend to enter into a war of words with Rangers or to dignify their position by responding in kind.

"We have noted their decision not to take any tickets for this cup tie and will now act accordingly in arranging the match," the release continued. "The statement from the Rangers makes it clear that their fans should not attend. We have therefore raised a number of related matters with the Scottish FA and will be making no further public statement until their advice has been received."
