Rangers failure to pay ticket revenue hits Dunfermline finances


The Fife side are owed £80,000 from a match on February 11th against Rangers, but three days later the Ibrox side went into administration.

Dunfermline chairman John Yorkston told BBC Scotland last night: “I can confirm full wages were not paid. We have made other arrangements to get monies in and it should be all squared up on Monday.”

In an official statement, Dunfermline said: “Due to the continuing delay by the Administrators at Rangers in paying the ticket revenue from the game held at East End Park on 11th February 2012 it has been necessary to part pay the Club’s February salaries to all staff including management and players.”

Bill Hodgins, Chief Executive said: “by Monday all staff will have received 80% of their salary and we will be in a position to pay the remaining balance within ten days. Our staff are aware that this situation is out with the Clubs control and they have been extremely understanding and supportive. In the meantime the Scottish Premier League are in constant dialogue with the Administrator at Rangers in order to try and secure payment of our ticket income of £84,000 that was due on 21st February 2012.”
