RANGERS have agreed an out-of-court settlement with former commercial director Imran Ahmad, who was suing the club for breach of contract.
Ahmad last week won the right to arrest £620,000 from the club’s bank account pending the court case in light of their ongoing financial difficulties.
Rangers were given leave to appeal that Court of Session decision with their case due to be heard in two months, but they announced an imminent end to the case in a statement to the London Stock Exchange on Friday morning.
Ahmad had claimed he was owed £500,000 in unpaid bonuses from Rangers.
The statement read: “Rangers have agreed formal terms of settlement with former commercial director Imran Ahmad regarding his current court action.
“The sum agreed is significantly less than the total amount which Mr Ahmad had been granted permission to arrest.
“As part of the settlement terms Mr Ahmad has agreed to refrain from arresting funds in Rangers’ bank account or in the hands of others pending the formal removal of the case from court.
“No such arrestment will now take place.
“The case will be formally taken out of court in the next few days.”
