Dundee United have been ordered to pay Rangers £170,000 [plus VAT]in compensation for their signing of youngster Charlie Telfer.
A tribunal met at Hampden Park on Tuesday to hear from both parties over their failure to reach an agreement for the 19-year-old after his move to Tannadice in the summer.
Rangers had argued that they were due six years worth of cash for the player at a fee of £40,000 per year, which equates to £240,000. While Dundee United argued that they should only receive money to cover a two-year period since Rangers went into liquidation in 2012.
Dundee United have already paid £60,000 to the Ibrox side and with finance tight at Rangers the additional £110,000 plus VAT will be a welcome sum to the Rangers coffers.
Under SPFL rules – Dundee United have ’28 days of the date of publication of a compensation tribunal determination’.
The SPFL tribunal was fronted by chief executive Neil Doncaster, secretary Iain Blair and FIFPRO vice president Tony Higgins.
