Rangers have recently expressed their concerns about the proposed new broadcasting deal with Sky Sports the SPFL have put together.

It would eventually rise to £30million a year with the possible addition of an extra £8million through two 10-game bundles worth £4million each.

He told Rangers Review: “We didn't market-test this deal. We have no idea what else is available in the market so we don't know whether it's the best deal or not. There's an advisor the SPFL have used and he's telling us all the reasons why he thinks it's a good deal.

“My problem is we haven't gone and sold it. We haven't sold it whatsoever. That's no secret. I've been reasonably vocal about it when I was on the SPFL board.

“Without breaching any confidences, I still think we are underselling Scottish football. I get frustrated by it.”
