DAVE KING’S dispute with Mike Ashley is over after the Rangers chairman announced a deal has been struck with the Sports Direct businessman.
The Ibrox chief called a surprise press conference on Wednesday to confirm a new kit deal with Ashley’s retail firm has been agreed.
It sees the current seven-year merchandise agreement – which reportedly earned Rangers seven pence from every pound spent in club shops – ripped up and a new 12-month contract put in place.

King hopes the deal will encourage supporters to end their kit sale boycott and provide a major financial boost as Rangers aim to take on last season’s runaway Ladbrokes Premiership winners Celtic.
