Measurements of the in-plane and out-of-plane electronic Raman continuum in MgB2 single crystals show markedly different behaviour below Tc, indicative of a complex gap structure. In xx and xy polarisation configurations, a sharp pair-breaking peak is seen near 100 cm-1 but no scattering threshold forms directly below the peak. In zz and zx polarisations, a threshold is seen at 30 cm-1 but no pair-breaking peak appears. This behaviour can be understood in terms of band-dependent impurity scattering effects on two separate gaps.
