Rangers approved to use Scotland's 'most successful' club slogan, watchdog rules

Rangers have been cleared by advertising watchdogs for a second time for using an advert describing itself as the "most successful" club in Scotland.

The Ibrox club have been given permission to use the slogan following a final decision by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA).

The watchdog began an investigation earlier this year after 82 people complained about the ads, which said "Join Scotland's most successful club at Ibrox" as part of a tickets promotion.

Critics claimed the slogan was misleading because oldco Rangers went into liquidation last year.

The ASA had previously cleared the advertisement in June.
