According to the Gers website: Almost 100 years to the day the Club was founded – was a hot, tense night in Barcelona when the Rangers spirit conquered Europe with a thrilling 3-2 victory over Moscow Dynamo at the Nou Camp.
Forty years later the Rangers spirit lives on and the Club has launched a commemorative home top that will certainly capture the imagination of supporters worldwide.
The top pays homage to the shirt worn four decades ago by legends like John Greig, Sandy Jardine, Colin Stein, Willie Johnston and Derek Johnstone. And it brings back the distinctive red and white socks Rangers wore during that incredible European adventure.
Main club sponsor Tennent’s Lager has kindly agreed to change its branding on the home shirt to help mark these significant anniversaries in Rangers’ history. The Tennent’s logo will now appear below the Club crest on the left breast of the shirt rather than across the chest as in previous seasons…
The new 2012/13 Rangers Home kit will be worn for the first time by the team at the friendly with Linfield at Windsor Park on Monday 7 May and the shirt features a bigger Rangers scroll crest with the 5 stars now running vertical at the side of the top.
