Glasgow Rangers fans are far from happy after it has been revealed that the club is under investigation for the price of their replica shirts during their partnership with Hummel.
The Competition and Markets Authority has revealed that it will be looking into the Ibrox outfit due to the pricing of their kit when it was made by Hummel, who were replaced by Castore earlier this year. The authority say that they suspect “anti-competitive behaviour”, with Greaves Sports and JD Sports also set to be part of the investigation.
With the 54-time Scottish champions performing well on the pitch as they top the Premiership by 13 points, this will hopefully not become a distraction for Steven Gerrard and co. The Gers supporters are far from happy with this news, with many believing it has something to do with Mike Ashley, an unpopular former shareholder at the club.
Do you expect the Gers to be prosecuted?
The fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts, with one supporter saying it is an ‘obvious attack’ from Ashley.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Hummel news below
sounds like the work of mike ashley raging that we have moved on, still trying to get us into courtrooms, is this because ashley was not offered to supply kits?

Sounds like Mike Ashley to me. Weird that every other retailer is there except SD.
