Chairman invites Rangers 'on board'

Chairman invites Rangers 'on board'

Dundee United chairman Stephen Thompson hopes for an end to the ongoing row with weekend opponents Rangers.

The two clubs meet in the Scottish Cup fifth round at Tannadice, where the visitors have not taken up their ticket allocation following United opposing them being in the SPL this season.

"Personally for the sake of Scottish football, I think we should move on," Thompson explained to BBC Scotland. "It's a game of football after all. That's what I'm looking forward to.

"We are in the middle of reconstruction talks and the game is moving forward," he continued. "We have got all SPL clubs together to move forward for the future and I think we all need to get together, every single club in Scotland, and it would be good for them [Rangers] to come on board as well."

The Tangerines certainly weren't alone in voting against Ibrox chief executive Charles Green's application to take over the SPL share Rangers lost following financial problems, but their supporters always considered Thompson as one of the most outspoken figures on the subject.

Dundee United remain fourth in the table following a scoreless draw at still winless Falkirk.

The Tangerines were forced into an early change after recent arrival Paul Quinn departed the action with a head knock.

Fellow centre-back Mark Durnan then headed over a Paul McMullan corner while Fraser Fyvie's volley from the edge of the area glanced an upright.

However, Craig Sibbald's header also tested the woodwork at the other end and Scott McDonald's diving reply was too high
