Rangers’ kit and retail partners, Castore, appear to be primed to release a new retro Gers kit range on Friday morning.
A long-term partnership was announced with the up and coming British brand in May.
🆕 #RangersFC is delighted to announce Castore, the fastest growing premium British sportswear brand, as its official kit and retail partner from the 2020-21 football season.#BetterNeverStops | #ANewEra

Since then, there have been plenty of complaints from supporters due to issues with stock, product quality and deliveries.
However, the response to the new kits has been positive and most of the teething problems now appear to have been resolved.
As part of their deal with the club, Castore refurbished and reopened the Rangers Store at Ibrox and they are offering a lot more than just replica shirts and training gear, with an extensive lifestyle range also available in-store and online.
Now, it seems the product list is set to grow further.
It’s been reported by supporters on social media that the release of a Rangers retro kit range is imminent.
Images of players such as Alfredo Morelos and James Tavernier modelling an old-style Gers home shirt and of Allan McGregor wearing a purple goalkeeper strip have been circulated.

There is no Castore logo nor a sponsor on the front of the kits, while both the outfield and the keeper options have prominent white collars.
It’s suggested that the retro kits will go on sale in-store and online at 10am on Friday morning, a day before the scheduled opening of an additional Rangers Store at Buchanan Galleries in Glasgow City Centre.
