Rangers kit partners Castore appear to have suffered yet another kit leak as a video of John Lundstram goes viral online.
The now Manchester-based retailers have been busy this season with a total of five kit releases amid the Ibrox club’s 150th anniversary season.
But the retailer was left red-faced when they accidentally sent out what appears to be next season’s home jersey to a supporter attempting to buy the special Weekend of Legends top.
Now, the retailer will be frustrated once again after yet another leak that appears to show John Lundstram in a 2nd, 3rd or training kit.
The video shows photographers taking images of Lundstram against a white screen in the new kit but so far it remains unconfirmed what the purpose of it is.
As this season rolls to its conclusion, it’s fair to say that Rangers fans are connecting the dots regarding the reasoning behind the new kit.
Castore kit leak leaves some Rangers fans frustrated
The jersey itself has largely been well received but the fact this is the second kit leak in a matter of months is of great frustration to supporters.
Castore – who have used the success of their Rangers operations to partner with Newcastle United, Wolves and now Bayer Leverkusen – have endured an up-and-down relationship with traditionally expectant Gers fans.
During their launch season, albeit during the Covid-19 pandemic, issues with deliveries and customer service blighted what was a landmark launch after years of retail drama behind the scenes at Ibrox.
Since then there have been complaints regarding sizing, quality and even design but by and large the kit contract, reportedly worth £25m over five years, is considered a success within Rangers.
But for some fans, repeated leaks and losing control of the marketing is not Rangers class and there have been groans about Castore from within the support.
Reports earlier in the season also claimed that Castore could announce as many as six new deals at football clubs across Europe this season.
