Alan Brazil touched again on the problems at Ibrox during his breakfast show on TalkSPORT.
The fanciful notion that a trophy-less rookie manager from Scotland might be about to take over from Jurgen Klopp can of course be filed under Squirrel.
Two weeks ago comments from Brazil to co-host Ally McCoist brought some focus onto the on-going issues at the club as the full cost of breaking the contract with Sports Direct is awaited.
@SportsBreakfast repeating the line about ‘I’m hearing stories about all sorts of problems’ at Ibrox. Oh dear, that’s a wee shame.

Alan: “The problem is if Gerrard is still at Rangers when Klopp leaves.”
Alan: “If Gerrard doesn’t get what he wants he’ll leave.”
Ray: “Gerrard won’t turn down Liverpool no matter what.”
Alan, Ray & @NicoleHolliday discuss if Gerrard will replace Klopp at #LFC

The damages and costs due to Sports Direct aren’t an isolated event. With Close Brothers propping up the company the prospect of a payout of around £10m is bound to be of concern even though their loan is secured.
Hummel and Elite will also lose out as their three year with the likely sales figures put to both firms as they tendered for the contract unlikely to have been matched.
