Mr Justice Phillips has heard that SDI Retail Services management want to stop bosses at the Glasgow club entering into a new deal with a “third party”.

SDI bosses say a contract clause means they should have a chance to match any new offer.

Earlier this month, a judge made a holding order temporarily barring bosses at Rangers from signing a new deal.

Mr Justice Phillips is hearing arguments, from lawyers representing both sides, about whether that order should be extended.
