Jackie McNamara has criticised the Rangers board for their role in the club’s ongoing court battle with Sports Direct over their kit provider.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Scotland international said that there were questions that needed answering by those in the Ibrox boardroom after the Gers were handed an injunction by the courts.

As has been widely reported, the club have been banned from wearing Hummel kits from the 2020/21 campaign as well as being forced to pay nearly £450,000 in legal fees.

McNamara said those at the top at Rangers needed to be held accountable for their failings which have led to the current situation at the Glasgow giants.

“What’s come out from that, it looks pretty bad on the club,” McNamara told Football Insider.

“To go to those lengths with Hummel and then you can’t have them next year, I think questions need answering in the boardroom. How can these things happen, especially with what Rangers went through a few years ago.

“These things are absolutely crucial to their development. How can these things happen, how have they left themselves open like that?”

Rangers kick off their new Premiership campaign with a trip to Kilmarnock on Sunday, having already taken to the pitch this summer with their Europa League qualifiers.

They will continue to wear their current Hummel-provided kits until the end of the season.
