Jim McAlister speaks out about unjust dismissal from Rangers.

The former kitman of the club successfully won a legal battle against Rangers, his boyhood team, following his dismissal last season. The 38-year-old, a former player for Dundee and Morton, received £13,000 in damages as ordered by an employment tribunal in Glasgow. The tribunal found that Rangers had breached the contract in terminating the kitman’s employment.

Expressing his gratitude on Instagram, Jim McAlister acknowledged the support he received during the challenging period after the tribunal. He highlighted the personal trauma he and his family experienced due to the false accusations. McAlister praised the Rangers family and football community for their sense of justice and fairness, thanking those who offered support through social media and personal messages.

Currently working for Al-Ettifaq in Saudi Arabia, McAlister was brought in by Steven Gerrard to contribute behind the scenes after his departure from Rangers.

In a separate development, Rangers goalkeeper Jack Butland is reportedly a strong contender for a spot in England’s squad for the upcoming European Championships. Butland, who has been in excellent form since joining Rangers, is said to be in contention for a place in the squad for the tournament. The goalkeeper, with nine caps for his country, has revitalized his career under Philippe Clement after serving as a backup at various Premier League clubs such as Stoke, Crystal Palace, and Manchester United.
