GLASGOW Rangers say they face a potential employment tribunal involving 67 players in relation to an alleged failure to inform and consult over the transfer of contracts from the old company to Charles Green’s new company.

In their share issue prospectus, Rangers declared that PFA Scotland had raised the claims and that they would “robustly” defend themselves.

The prospectus also states that former Ibrox players Sone Aluko, Kyle Lafferty and Jamie Ness have raised constructive dismissal claims.

The three players were among nine who refused to transfer their contracts over to ex Sheffield United chief executive Green’s company, which bought the club’s assets and business after oldco Rangers, now called RFC 2012, were consigned to liquidation in June.

Deals were agreed with clubs after Steven Davis, former Blades target John Fleck and Rhys McCabe - who joined Sheffield Wednesday - left but a complaint against a total of six registration transfers will be heard by an SFA panel, including those involving Allan McGregor, Steven Naismith and Steven Whittaker.
