McAvennie slams selfish Rangers for 'reckless' new dispute that could damage every SPFL club
Frank McAvennie has slammed Rangers wanting to “fight everyone” amid their latest controversy.
The Celtic icon, speaking exclusively to Football Insider, reacted to the club’s new dispute with the SPFL.
On 1st August, The Scottish Sun claimed Rangers are “at war” with the league over their sponsorship deal with online car dealership Cinch.
At the weekend, the Gers players’ shirts did not show the Cinch logo as a result of the dispute.
It is reported that Rangers insist there is a clause in the SPFL rulebook which allows them to snub any advertising which may impact their own sponsorship deals.
McAvennie has told the SPFL to come down hard on Rangers and slammed the club for wanting to “fight everyone”.

“If that’s what they want to do, pull them out and don’t let them have the money,” McAvennie told Football Insider‘s Ben Wild.
“What are they playing at? Rangers have to seriously think about the other teams. It’s so reckless.
“If Rangers won’t play ball with the sponsors then why would another sponsor come and give the league money?
“They want to fight everyone all of the time and make up their own rules.
“We saw it with the government earlier this year, they just want to argue.
“They think the whole world is against them.
“It’s so tiring. They should be cut off. If they don’t want the sponsor then fine, don’ give them the money.
“No special treatment.”
Rangers came to blows with the Scottish government last season as fans broke social distancing rules to celebrate their league win.
Fans have been allowed back into Ibrox this season and the club expects full capacity to be available for next week’s clash with Malmo.
