They said " ....."

Are these structures both correct? Do they have slightly different meanings?

Okay, slight nuance. 

と言っていました ー You were there when it was said and are reporting to someone what was said (he was saying that...)

と言いました ー You weren't nessecarily there, when it was said (he said...)
