Dundee United and Rangers went head-to-head in the Scottish Cup back in February
Dundee United have been informed by the Scottish Football Association that they will receive £35,000 of the outstanding money owed to them from their Scottish Cup clash with Rangers.
The Terrors are understood to be demanding around £67,000 in ticket sales from the meeting between the two sides at Ibrox in February - a contest which took place prior to the Gers entering administration.
The matter is subject to a ruling by the SFA's judiciary panel which will take place in April.
However, a sum of cash from broadcasting revenue - which would normally have been distributed to Rangers - will be paid into the Tannadice club's coffers instead.
An SFA statement confirmed: "The Scottish FA has notified Dundee United that they will this week receive £35,000 of the outstanding money from their William Hill Scottish Cup tie against Rangers in February.
"This money will help meet part of the overdue payable to the club and has been offset from broadcasting revenue from the competition that, under normal circumstances, would have been distributed to Rangers.
"The Scottish FA has informed both clubs."
Rangers were issued with a notice of complaint by the SFA on 8th March for failure to pay money owed to United.
SFA chief executive Stewart Regan said at the time: "We have sent a letter to the Rangers administrators, Duff and Phelps, advising them that failure to pay monies owed to another member constitutes a breach of the Cup Competition Rules.
"Consequently, the club faces disciplinary action unless they make payments due to Dundee United from their recent William Hill Scottish Cup tie."
