Rangers face playing their William Hill Scottish Cup clash at Tannadice with a much-diminished away backing after one of their main supporters groups called for an organised boycott.

Rangers were paired with Dundee United in the fifth round, the first occasion they have been drawn away against Clydesdale Bank Premier League opposition since they were relaunched as a new company and denied entry to the SPL. The Rangers Supporters Assembly urged fans to participate in a "full boycott".

A statement from the group read: "The Rangers support has waited patiently for the opportunity to send a clear message to those that tried to destroy our club - starve them of their much-needed cash by boycotting this game."
