Usually, at this point in the season, the entire Rangers kit collection by Castore will have been leaked.

However, with just a couple of games until the end of the season, there has been nothing.

Until now.

It hasn’t been a video of a player wearing a strip or a dodgy looking photo, instead it is a clear image of what, at first sight, appears to be a Dundee United away strip with a Rangers badge, sponsored by Castore.

Image of a Rangers strip provided by Castore that emerged on social media.

There is one thing allowing for artistic license with away strips but this is taking it too far.

Every season Rangers have been with Castore has seen a black away strip for some reason but this one really would be pushing their luck.

The previous efforts have been subtle and with black or orange trim.

This is like something Jorge Campos would send back for being too garish.

In fairness, it would be a good kit for the kids.

Spaghetti hoops, beans, tomato sauce, all of which would almost be invisible if they were spilt.

Rangers and Castore were good for each other when the agreement was signed in 2018.

We needed each other.

With two years left on the current agreement though, I’d imagine that Rangers have significantly more offers on the table when it comes to renewal talks.

This time, Rangers also have James Bisgrove in charge, a man who led UEFA’s commercial and marketing department.

Castore won’t ever be able to make everyone happy with their designs but, if this is real, I’d love to see who at Rangers has signed this one off.

Maybe it was Ross Wilson’s last piece of business before heading out the door – laughing his head off on the way.
