Rangers fans wait to read latest ruling on fight with Mike Ashley
A company in the Sports Direct Group, SDI Retail Services, says Rangers are in breach of obligations under a deal relating to replica kit
Rangers fans are waiting to read a judge’s ruling on the latest round of the club’s long-running High Court fight over merchandise sales with Sports Direct owner Mike Ashley.
A company in the Sports Direct Group, SDI Retail Services, says Rangers are in breach of obligations under a deal relating to replica kit.
Bosses at Rangers dispute claims made against them.
Judge Lionel Persey finished overseeing the latest in a series of hearings at the High Court in London earlier this year.
The judge, who had analysed a number of legal issues, was listed to hand down a ruling at a hearing in London on June 6.
He said he had reached a decision – but he has not yet made his ruling publicly available.
Rangers lost a round of the fight in October.
Another judge ruled Rangers had breached the terms of an agreement made with SDI.
Mr Justice Teare concluded that bosses at Rangers had made a new agreement with another firm without giving SDI a chance to match that firm’s offer.
SDI subsequently made further complaints.
