Neil Alexander wins £84,000 after Rangers breach of contract


rangersFormer Rangers goalkeeper Neil Alexander has won £84,000 after a SPFL tribunal ruled that Rangers were in breach of contract, after it was proven that he was due money as part of a contractual agreement which the club failed to adhere too.

Alexander, who is now at Championship league leaders Hearts, according to STV Sport was due to receive an increase in wages and bonuses if club number one Allan McGregor left the club.

McGregor quit Ibrox when Charles Green bought Rangers’ assets after a CVA had been rejected by the club’s creditors. The Scotland international refused to transfer his contract over and he successfully terminated his contract before moving to Turkish side Besiktas in 2012.

Rangers reportedly claimed that McGregor did not technically ‘transfer’ away from the club, but the tribunal ruled that the shot stopper did and backed Alexander’s case for breach of contract.

The Ibrox club have appealed the decision, with a date yet to be announced by the Scottish FA judicial panel.
