Prominent Rangers fans group and shareholder Club 1872 have criticised the Gers’ handling of complaints over the new kit launches and have demanded the club and Castore give a “clear explanation” of what has gone wrong to supporters affected.

There have been a long list of issues since the start of the partnership with the Liverpool-based brand and, since fans took their issues to social media, Castore have gone very quiet.

Club 1872 put a statement out on 24th August regarding the many problems fans have faced but confirmed that they have had no response from Rangers or Castore.

With there plans for a small focus group to be held to discuss the issues, the prominent shareholding group don’t think that is an “effective or equitable” way to deal with the remarkable number of fans who have had issues.

“We do not believe it is the correct forum to be addressing those issues, nor is it an effective or equitable way to communicate with supporters,” Club 1872 said in the statement on their website.

“Every supporter who has been affected by these issues deserves a clear explanation of what has gone wrong as well as reassurance for the future.

“We reiterate our strong belief that Rangers supporters – including all at Club 1872 – want to support both Castore and Rangers throughout the duration of this long-term retail partnership. To that end, we continue to press both Rangers and Castore for appropriate responses to the questions we have asked on behalf of the support.”

Rangers signed what looked like a fantastic deal with Castore in the summer – believed to be worth £25m to the club – as years of battles surrounding the kit deal with Sports Direct finally came to an end but it has been far from plain sailing.

There have been far too many issues for supporters to simply show blind faith and continue to pour cash in, and the longer the club appears to ignore the majority of the complaints, the worse it looks.
