Sports Direct and Newcastle United owner billionaire Mike Ashley has won the latest round of a High Court fight with Rangers Football Club over a merchandise deal said to result in the Rangers getting about 7p of every £1 spent.
Sports Direct group say Rangers’ directors wrongly terminated a contract through which branded products, including kits, were sold, and are seeking damages.
Rangers’ directors dispute their claim and wanted a judge to call a halt to the litigation. They claim that Sports Direct pocketed too much money from the deal.
Deputy High Court Judge Richard Millett has decided Ashley should be allowed to continue with the damages claim.
He announced his decision in a written ruling after analysing competing arguments on whether litigation should stop at a High Court hearing in London.
The judge gave no date for the next hearing.
