Fallen Scottish giants Rangers are expected to soon announce a sponsorship deal with adidas.
The German manufacturers have been in talks with ‘Gers chief executive Charles Green and director Imran Ahmad and it is believed that they will take the kit sponsorship from Umbro as early as next week.
Additionally, the Rangers officials are in North America to speak with club supporters groups in Toronto, New York, Orlando and Houston and are hoping to tee up a commercial partnership with NFL franchise Dallas Cowboys.
“Fingers crossed we will sign with adidas this week,” Ahmad revealed in Toronto.
“They said to me we’ve lost Liverpool and Real Madrid, Rangers will be the biggest club we have. We would have spots in adidas stores in North America. There are massive brand development opportunities.
“We have been in talks with Dallas Cowboys about commercial partnership and we are looking to start an academy in North America.”
