'Couldn't happen to a nicer club' - Rangers fans react to emergency cash injection in SPFL club
Rangers fans have taken great joy in seeing Dundee United selling their training ground to a major shareholder in the club in order to see out the season – with United chairman Stephen Thompson’s history with the Ibrox giants long from forgotten.
Thompson has raised the ire of Gers fans on a number of occasions over the years – with his decision to charge fans full price admission to those who attended the original game when a clash between the two was abandoned a particular sore point with the Ibrox support.
In an emergency cash injection, the SPFL club sold their GA Arena training ground to Mike Martin for £1million, as confirmed by their official Twitter account, as they fight to get back to the Scottish Premiership.
Gers fans were delighted to see the Tannadice side struggling – with one saying it was “karma” coming back to them.
Here are some of their comments on Twitter:

The Arabs have struggled financially since relegation to the Championship with Thompson looking to sell the club he inherited from his father Eddie.
Thompson has been a vocal critic of the Gers over the years and Gers fans are enjoying seeing the Arabs struggle after what their own club endured in 2012 when they were thrown into the bottom tier of Scottish football after financial meltdown.
With Rangers at their closest point to securing their first title since 2012, the timing of Dundee United’s troubles will make it particularly sweeter for Gers fans.
In other Rangers news, controversial TalkSport host Adrian Durham has claimed that this key Celtic man must quit Parkhead at the end of the season because of the Light Blues.
