Le­gal rul­ing due on Gers re­tail row with Ash­ley

Evening Times - - NEWS -

SPORTS Di­rect owner Mike Ash­ley and bosses at Rangers Foot­ball Club are wait­ing for a judge’s rul­ing on the lat­est round of the long-run­ning High Court fight over merchandis­e sales.

Judge Lionel Persey, who fin­ished over­see­ing the lat­est in a se­ries of hear­ings in Lon­don, is ex­pected to pub­lish a rul­ing in the near fu­ture.

Lawyers rep­re­sent­ing a com­pany in the Sports Di­rect Group, SDI Re­tail Ser­vices, say Rangers have vi­o­lated a deal re­lat­ing to replica kit.

But the club dis­putes the claims made against them. Rangers lost a round of le­gal ar­gu­ment in Oc­to­ber. An­other judge ruled Rangers had breached the terms of an agree­ment made with SDI.

Mr Jus­tice Teare con­cluded Ibrox of­fi­cials had made a new agree­ment with an­other firm with­out giv­ing SDI a chance to match that firm’s of­fer. SDI has also made fur­ther com­plaints.
