New third choice strip

Colour purple revives Rangers’ Euro memories

Rangers stripRangers have revived memories of their 1990s domination of Scottish football by launching a purple kit worn for their European ventures.

The third-choice shirt with a diamond pattern was designed by the club’s sponsorship partner Puma and is said to have been influenced by Rangers era of success when the club were champions for eight seasons in a row. The purple strip was worn for European fixtures.

Rangers chairman Dave King said: “Rangers are happy to be in a partnership which brings such prestigious brands together. Puma understands the Club’s heritage and we also recognise Puma’s global standing. We hope this season brings joint success.”

However, the club is facing an extra financial challenge this year because some fans are calling for a boycott of official merchandise being sold by Sports Direct, the company owned by minority shareholder Mike Ashley.
