Rangers File Counter Claim against SDI

This entire process is pretty much the only thing about following Rangers nowadays that isn't enjoyable.

Would quite like to see karma hit Mike Ashley for what he does to his employees, particularly those in Shirebrook. Some of the stories are absolutely appalling.

I dunno if it was just reading in to things based on the AGM but if King is really needing to attend to his business in SA as he described, my thinking was that he feels there's a reasonable short time before a conclusion is reached with SDi or he wouldn't have agreed to stay on in that role.

I think there was a comment along the lines of "we thought we'd reached an agreement at one stage" too which suggests things are getting there (allowing for Ashley being a duplicitous lady's front bottom)

Hopefully it's concluded before too long.

Surely the fat c(nt is due a massive heart attack / stroke combo

And you have so called left wing socialists that are cheering him on. The man is a horrible employer of the working classes who wouldn't be out of place in a Dickens story.

Something in the Liverpool commercial verdict that assists us?

Anyway, at the hearing on 2nd October 2019 the judge gave 8 weeks extension for and amended defence by Rangers and an amended defence by Elite (so the timing looks right).

The attached document (transcript of procedings on 2nd October) suggests another hearing on 10th January 2020.


Sounds like the Judge is a bit fed up with it all, his first comment being "Is it the fifth round or the quarter finals?". From what I can discern Rangers/Elite forming a co-ordinated defence against SDS who seem to have claims against both and there remained issues of disclosure. All a bit beyond me but legal eagles among FF may well make more of it

This may well be King vs Ashley, but it's the club's money that is being spent on this ongoing litigation, not King's.

It was comforting to hear King say it’s more of an irritant nowadays as our other revenue grows. Let’s hope the King can scratch the itch!

One thing we can take from that summary is that we have changed our lawyers.

SDI are trying to sue Elite for inducing breach of contract by Rangers.

They are also adding claims for misrepresentation by Blair on Rangers behalf.

Both of these things are attempts to get round the cap on damages - either might work.
