RANGERS director Sandy Easdale has threatened to sue a supporter for a second time after receiving 2500 emails in a day from disgruntled fans.
The threat was reportedly issued by solicitors Levy and McRae to Craig Houston of the fans group Sons of Struth, with demands for the emails to stop or the police would be contacted.
Houston, who heads up the Sons of Struth group had set up an e-petition for fans to back the group’s demands that Ibrox is not sold or used as security for loans.
However, with every signature an email was sent to Easdale’s business address, resulting in what the director’s lawyers have described as their client being ‘harassed”.
A spokesman for the bus tycoon told the Daily Record: “He wouldn’t mind so much if the emails were sent to his Rangers account, but they are being sent to his private account.”
Houston has defended himself, adding: “When an e-petition is signed an email is sent to those you protest against. The address was supplied to me by his lawyer. I have no plans to remove the petition. Fellow Rangers fans’ reaction to this will be that even more of them sign up.”
It is not the first time Easdale has threatened to take Houston to court. In March, the Ibrox director tried to sue the Sons chief over what he describeds as “libellous comments” but dropped proceedings.
