image for Dundee United Chairman Favours Sanctions Against Rangers

Dundee United chairman Steven Thompson has called for UEFA to "use the full force of the law" if Rangers are found guilty of allowing their fans to indulge in sectarian singing.

The Tangerines owner has bucked the trend by coming out against the Glasgow club and advocating that strong measures be taken against them for breaching UEFA disciplinary guidelines.

"I would support sanctions against Glasgow Rangers including compelling them to play some or all of their home fixtures behind closed doors", the Tannadice chief explained.

"We must get rid of the scourge of sectarianism and bigotry from the game and , if it means clubs losing much needed revenue by their supporters being banned from attending, then so be it".

Thompson would not, however, comment on the suggestion that playing Rangers in a closed doors game would handicap Dundee United less than other sides in view of the club's pathetic away support.

Only 41 Tangerines saw their midweek defeat by Motherwell at Fir Park.
