Sounds like we’re due SD millions in compensation, we might not be allowed to sell our 2nd and 3rd kits, we’ll be back with SD forever, SD will decide who makes our kit, we’ll never be free from SD unless they decide to walk away, and Elite will probably sue us.

Can’t really see any positives in this.

%^*& me I wish I never read that.
So the worst possible outcome we could have imagined and that fat mess could have us playing in Slazenger kits if he wants?

It’s not sickening . They can’t make us buy from them .

I’d rather spend £40 buying the new rising stars tickets than buy a kit from Mike Ashley
It is sickening as not everyone thinks like you or I. A lot will buy from sports direct regardless of they need to.

The club/Elite will have known of this ruling for a few weeks and have continued with the pop up shop / away kit launch. Why?

%^*& it, did anyone else have in the back of their head that this wasn't right? Selling merch outside a pub when we are in a contract? Being able to use a Website to buy shirts and skip Ashley and SD?

What a fucking mess.

Forgive me if I've got this wrong, but Elite is selling as one of Hummel's partners. I was under the impression that this deal had nothing legally to do with Rangers, so why would Rangers have to pay SDI?

It’s grim, really f*cking grim. A huge setback that the Board, I suspect, knew was coming. Will they even be allowed to comment on it I wonder?

That's what we will have to happen I'd say, yes.
So the £3 million we gave Ashley to get out of the seven year deal just gets written off ? The £1 million odd we’ve to pay them for last season now and probably the same this season ? That’s walking away from a £5 million pound loss and remaining with the same charlatans we were trying to get away from .

I don’t see how that is going to help anyone .

Board need to come out and make some sort of comment on this
Its still under appeal. If raised at the agm it would be treated with arrogance. We are moving forward on the park due to the thorough professionalism of SG. I still believe the board are inept in many areas:
PR is still open season. They can’t even fix the BBC with their pathetic dossier.
Legal advice...
Fan engagement.
Building the brand.

The lauding of King on here is completely unbalanced. He has achieved a stabilisation in the football side but along he way some monumental financial screw ups. Off the field I remain unimpressed. No doubt the usual cheerleaders will allow no criticism. And given we sunk our hard earned cash into what Is now easy money for SD. We have a right to be absolutely incandescent.

Yes, it's that bad.

Plus could easily be more than £1m for the damages. As it's this season plus last.

I think the club were hoping we'd have to pay damages but be free of the contract. Sounds like we'll now have to pay damages and also be stuck in a contract with a toxic partner that has no interest in a mutually beneficial relationship. Great.

Kinda glad I held off on buying any of the new gear. I'd be absolutely spewing if any of my cash went towards this fat wretched bastard.

Given that two Elite executives were amongst the witnesses and that the judgement refers throughout to the ‘Elite/Hummel Agreement’ I’d say that argument has been blown out the water.

I know it's being appealed, but it just doesn't look great. Really can't see an end to this whole fiasco.

An update/advice from Dave king would be really helpful. Maybe not right now with the case being live, but as soon as possible.

From where I sit, the Learned Judge has gone by the contract written between us and SDI. We all know that SDI had their placemen on Rangers at the time and they were the ones who signed this ridiculous deal. There really is nothing we can do about it until it expires except to mitigate the damage these unscrupulous individuals have caused us. We can appeal everything and wait until we are in a better monetary position before offering SDI a settlement that the fat man can accept. Unfortunately, the Learned Judge can only go by the written contract in front of him and that is his only route.

Does anyone know who Elite actually are - they just appeared and started selling kits for us. IF the appeal doesnt work do what fat man does and liquidate before he gets any cash(meaning Elite not the Club)

Why should the club pay compensation because the fans were boycotting?
The club didn’t ask them to. I don’t see how any arrangement with SD can work if our kit manufacturer will not supply to SD that’s not really Rangers problem.

The pigs fans mostly hate Lawwell and co even though he has them in a strong financial position with a few profitable years in a row and a large cash balance. Just because they didn't want Lennon and want more money spent.

Our board %^*& up monumentally like this and we have a far higher % of fans who basically think that King can't be criticised. It's ridiculous.

The SD contract was obviously miles messier than King realised and it us proving difficult, if not impossible, to get out of it. There have clearly been some major fck ups in our handling of the case and its now become personal. It will need creative thinking and s fsir bit of cash to put it right - this us where a proper FD might have been handy....

It's not because we were boycotting it's because we broke the agreement with them.
