Rangers have decided to drop plans for a 5th Castore kit release this season, as plans for a Legends kit are shelved following feedback from supporters.

That’s according to Ibrox insider and Twitter personality Michael Seafarer, who made the claim on his official account ahead of the Weekend of Legends clash on Sunday (26th March).

Seafarer is claiming that Rangers had initially considered the release of a 5th kit to supporters, but have opted against the move after listening to feedback via a fan survey.

This comes after Rangers released a similar shirt as part of the 150th anniversary Weekend of Legends match, with the Legends XI wearing the kit in last season’s clash.

It is claimed that Rangers have recognised the potential pressure this could put on families amid a cost of living crisis and four releases already this season.

The Twitter account also claimed that the proposal for the 5th Rangers kit came from within the club and had nothing to do with retailer Castore, who remain a controversial partner amongst supporters.

Rangers bin plans for 5th Castore kit

“Rangers have decided not to launch a ‘legends’ shirt this season,” said Michael Seafarer.

“The club has listened to fans through feedback and engagement, this decision recognised the financial pressures a fifth shirt could have on supporters and their families.

“Since there was a shirt launched last season and I’ve seen others asking about a ‘legends’ shirt. I posed the question to the club and I’m conveying the response that I received.

“This was a club-led decision and had nothing to do with Castore.”

The decision will likely be welcomed by supporters, who slammed Rangers for releasing a 4th Castore kit, never mind a 5th, earlier in the season.

The pinstripe design might’ve pleased some but it certainly didn’t come at the right time, with Rangers flailing under Giovanni van Bronckhorst and the mood particularly sombre.

Something tells us the same would happen again here so, short of giving them credit, we’re glad that the Rangers board didn’t sleepwalk into another PR catastrophe.
