‘Rangers’ have today been found guilty of shafting their own loyal supporters by colluding with JD Sports and Elite to bump up prices of the club’s home shirt to the highest price point of £60.
The three business have been fined over £2m in total each, with the Ibrox club receiving a £225,000 fine imposed by a UK competition watchdog.
All three penalties were reduced due to each of them admitting to acting illegally and fixing prices.
Michael Grenfell, executive director of enforcement at the CMA, said: “At a time when many people are worried about the rising cost of living, it is important that football fans are able to benefit from competitively priced merchandise.”
“Instead, Elite, JD Sports and, to some extent, Rangers, worked together to keep prices high.”
“Today’s decision sends a clear message to football clubs and other businesses that illegal anti-competitive collusion will not be tolerated.”
Reading between the lines of the report from STV, it seems that Rangers put pressure on JD Sports to increase the price of the home shirt from £55 to £60, in line with what the Ibrox club and Elite were selling the shirt for.
The gullible Ibrox fanbase will continue to have the wool pulled over their eyes by their own board time and time again, because they don’t hold them to account and are instead too busy obsessing over Celtic to realise that they are constantly shafted by their own club.
“Yeah, our own club have shafted us, but what about historic child abuse at Celtic?” Seems to be the go-to response for a lot of weird Ibrox fans in relation to this story.
Celtic fans of course have taken great delight in seeing the gullible Ibrox fans taken advantage of by their own club yet again.
