Rangers will donate any gate receipts from their William Hill Scottish Cup tie against Dundee United to charity.

The club confirmed they would not sell any tickets for the fifth-round fixture on February 2 and have urged fans not to travel to Tannadice after supporters groups called for a boycott of the game.

The issue relates to United denying Rangers a place in the SPL last summer with some fans believing Chairman Stephen Thompson was influential in the Gers' demotion to the Irn-Bru Third Division.

The Scottish Football Association board met to discuss the decision on Thursday.

Rangers chief executive Charles Green said in a statement: "The club was contacted by Dundee United requesting us to waive our rights to the share of the gate under cup competition rule 46(c), this was declined.

"It has been decided by the board that any proceeds from gate receipts due to the club will be donated to the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice Brick by Brick Appeal and Erskine charities via the Rangers Charity Foundation."
