Sports Direct has won an injunction against Rangers Football Club preventing it from disclosing confidential information about its relationship.

The injunction means that Rangers will not be able to reveal any confidential details about its retail deal with Sports Direct at the extraordinary general meeting, which takes place on Friday.

Mike Ashley, who owns Sports Direct, Newcastle United and is a Rangers shareholder, called the extraordinary meeting in an attempt to force the club to repay a £5 million loan.

A judge ruled: "I am satisfied there is a real risk of disclosure tomorrow of confidential information."

Rangers has also been ordered to pay £20,000 legal costs.

The injunction comes after the Daily Record reported what the judge told was confidential information.

Sports Direct is understood to control around 75% of Rangers, but the Scottish Championship club wants to change that at the EGM. It will also urge shareholders to vote against Mike Ashley's demand to have the £5m loan repaid.
