A FIRM suing Rangers following a shelved plan for an Ibrox disaster memorial wall and garden is due to have a full hearing of its £1.3million claim in March next year.

The English-based firm, Memorial Walls, raised the damages action against the Ibrox club after it pulled out of the proposed venture.

Gavin MacColl QC, for the firm, told a judge at the Court of Session in Edinburgh yesterday that the action is due to be heard over four days from March 24.

The judge, Lady Wolffe, pointed out that the witnesses listed to give evidence were “significant in number”.

Mr MacColl said: “A significant number of those witnesses are likely to be brief.”

Kenny McBrearty QC, for Rangers, said that although there were 21 witnesses between the parties the aim was focused in getting the hearing of evidence done within the four days.

Mr MacColl previously told the court that the action was a breach of contract case but the breach was admitted, with outstanding issues of causation and the level of damages remaining.

The original claim brought against Rangers was for £6.4m but it now stands at £1.3m.
