Glasgow Rangers fans are livid after it was revealed Premier Sports will be the title sponsor of the Scottish League Cup until the end of the 2026/27 season, and will also be the exclusive broadcaster of the competition.
The Gers cantered to the Premiership title this term – they remain unbeaten in that competition (BBC) – but they were still unable to get their hands on one of the two domestic cup competitions as well. In the League Cup, they were beaten 3-2 by St. Mirren, which was their first defeat of the season (Sky Sports).
Some of their matches have been on Premier Sports this season, and the fans have been quick to direct their criticism towards the broadcaster, whether it be in regards to their commentators or kick-off times. Therefore, this news has not gone down well with the fans at all.
