Rangers have slashed the online prices of their home, away and third kit by 50%, potentially suggesting the club will have a new kits next season.
As has often been the case at Ibrox, Rangers have worn the same kits for two seasons on the bounce. But this time around it looks like it could be different. That’s if the price reduction is nothing to do with the ongoing legal issues with Sports Direct.
All three of Rangers kit are now 50% off and are available at www.thegersstoreonline.com.
Rangers fans have had to wait a long time to be able to buy Rangers merchandise. The club have been embroiled in an off-field dispute with retailer Sports Direct, with previous regimes agreeing a kit deal which was detrimental to the club’s fortunes.
Fans were delighted back in September last year when the kits finally went on sale on the website. The site infamously crashed such was the outpouring of support from fans.
Some fans also encouraged others to visit local sports retailer Greaves Sports for their kits back in October. The sports retailer defended the club during the much publicised off-field disputes.
With the price of kits now experiencing a 50% reduction, the club are obviously trying to get rid of stock.
It could well be to make way for the new kit coming in for the season beginning. Or could it be to do with the club losing the latest round of the merchandise fight with Sports Direct?
One thing’s for sure – the club wouldn’t be encouraging supporters to buy merchandise Rangers weren’t seeing the benefit.
