Rangers fans had to wait quite a long time to be able to get their hands on their new 2018/19 strip. After sportswear firm, Sports Direct, successfully won an interim injunction, the court had ordered the Glasgow Club not to put their strips on sale.
After, several months of waiting, it was only this week that the new shirts were finally released by the club. As one would expect, Rangers fans were in a hurry to place their orders and as a result, Rangers’ official website as well as the website of retailers JD Sports, both crashed due to the sudden upsurge in traffic.
Fans who had decided to manually go the JD Sports’ retail stores to buy the kits instead of purchasing them online were pleasantly surprised by the items available for sale. One Rangers who went to one of the retail stores made a discovery – that the Rangers training gear that was on sale was actually better-made than the home kit.
Several Gers fans were upset at the fact that despite having had to wait for the home kit for months and being charging extravagant prices, the club’s badge on the kit was still ironed-on instead of being properly stitched up. The training gear however didn’t seem to have the same flaw.
Check-out the training gear available for sale below:
