Rangers fans have been raving about the club’s new third kit after the Castore product became available online earlier this week.
The Gers’ new kit and retail partners have come under increasing scrutiny in recent weeks amid delivery failings and complaints of poor customer service.
Castore sent an email to supporters prior to the weekend to acknowledge that the service had fallen below expectations and announce that they had switched suppliers in a bid to resolve the prevailing issues.

The service may have been poor to date but few supporters have had any qualms about the look of the strips.
The black and orange third strip completes the set and on Tuesday morning, the club announced that it was finally available online.
🔥 With a jet black base and bold orange trims, the 2020/2021 Rangers third jersey has been designed to stand out.

A few hours later, pictures were released of star left-back Borna Barisic modelling the jersey, and plenty of Bears took the opportunity to praise Castore’s work.
Here’s a selection of reactions from Twitter:
It’s a thing of beauty, this shirt.
