Trinity Mirror's The Daily Record fires copying claims at News International's The Sun over Rangers trophy stripping 'exclusive' report

Trinity Mirror's The Daily Record fires copying claims at News International's The Sun over Rangers trophy stripping 'exclusive' reportTrinity Mirror's The Daily Record fires copying claims at News

Trinity Mirror’s Scottish tabloid The Daily Record has hit out at its News International Rival The Scottish Sun of copying its story revealing plans to strip Rangers of previous titles and trophies.

The Daily Record has run a story, headlined ‘The Sun prove they are off the pace by ripping off our Rangers dossier exclusive’ yesterday, claiming to have run the story over two months ago themselves.

The reported stripping of nine trophies could come as the result of alleged undisclosed EBTs to the authorities of Scottish football.

The Daily Record ran the story alleging that it had been copied after The Sun ran its own ‘Exclusive Investigation’, with the Trinity Mirror title even stating that The Sun’s story included ‘whole sections’ that had been “ripped off and reproduced verbatim.”

As a result, the newspaper also claims that The Sun is ‘off the pace’ on the story of the Rangers saga and that its rival had ‘floundered’ while it reported other detail.

The article was tweeted by its publisherMedia Scotland’s editor-in-chief Alan Rennie last night.

At the time of writing, The Drum had contacted News International for comment and was awaiting a response.
