Expert slams Rangers after 'embarrassing' Cinch development

Rangers and Parks of Hamilton’s dispute with the SPFL and Cinch is “embarrassing”.

That’s according to former West Ham hitman Frank McAvennie, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after a development in the dispute.

On 1 August 2021, The Scottish Sun first claimed Rangers are “at war” with the league over their sponsorship deal with online car dealership Cinch.

Rangers claim SFA rules mean they can refuse league sponsors that clash with existing deals which, in this case, is Douglas Park’s own used car business.

The issue has been ongoing since and on Thursday (16 June), a statement (via BBC Sport) from Parks of Hamilton demanded an independent Scottish FA inquiry into the issues, claiming ” the SPFL decided to abuse the SFA’s arbitration process”.

McAvennie wants the dispute to end as soon as possible.

“It’s embarrassing, the season hasn’t even started yet and there are problems,” McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Ben Wild.

“I would like Rangers to have fewer arguments with people and let Gio do the football stuff.

“Keep the headlines about the football team because the players won’t like this constant bickering from the board.

“I would love to have a right go at the board but I don’t know the ins and outs of it.

“Surely grown men can sit around a table and sort this out.

“It’s been going on and on and when you see the Rangers players being interviewed, Cinch is marked out behind them, it’s just embarrassing.

“Just sit around a table and sort it out.”
