Dunfermline issue statement on Rangers administration


They added: “The Board and club would wish to convey their support to Rangers FC and hope that the club can find a way through this terrible time.”

Despite the good wishes from the East End Park side, the Fife side will be hit financially by the Ibrox side going into administration with monies still outstanding of around £80,000 of gate receipts from last Saturday’s match between the two sides, which the Pars lost 4-1.

The statement continued: “However, the direct impact to Dunfermline is not insignificant: Rangers FC are due Dunfermline in the region of £80,000 of gate receipts from Saturday’s fixture which is obviously of extreme concern.”

The club have however, resigned themselves to the fact that they will not receive the money owed to them, which will cause some financial difficulties.

“This payment is no longer expected to be received by next Tuesday which would have been due to the club. This is a significant amount of money for a club such as DAFC to lose especially after losing £50,000 due to our game against Kilmarnock being postponed and will create some challenges for us over the coming months, these challenges are not insurmountable.”

The Fife side have now fallen back on several plans to cover the shortfall, they said: “Dunfermline and the Board of Directors already have put in place a number of initiatives to raise additional capital to ensure that the Club balances its books and has an ongoing programme to reduce costs.”
