Italian sportswear manufacturer Fila was on Friday reported to be involved in a row with supermarket chain Safeway over the sale of replica Scotland football shirts.

Reports claim the pair have clashed because Fila, which makes the tops, fears the retailer and team's official sponsor will sell the shirts at a heavily discounted price which will affect its relationship with sports shops.

Safeway already sells England football tops at discount but only after buying them on the grey market. The dispute comes just days after the Office of Fair Trading launched a major probe into alleged price-fixing of replica tops.
