Rangers Football Club return to the Scottish Premiership for the first time since their emergence from liquidation in 2012 on Saturday.
The fifty four time champions of Scotland will meet Hamilton at Ibrox Stadium in Glasgow following a successful ascent from the Scottish fourth tier over the last five seasons.
Current technical sponsor PUMA recently released the Rangers FC 2016/17 home, away and third kits. Although the blue home uniform has been worn in pre-season action by the club, the launch comes with some controversy given Rangers’ ongoing dispute with Sports Direct owner and team shareholder Mike Ashley. There are now rumors that Rangers may terminate their technical partnership with PUMA and switch to Under Armour before the end of the season.
The Rangers 16/17 PUMA home kit is inspired by their 1988/89 double-winning shirt. The jersey has a definite 1980s feel about its through its overlapping v-neck collar and checkered finish. An away shirt featuring blocks of red and white on its front and a polo collared third jersey in white, sky blue and navy blue are slated to be The Gers change kits for their upcoming Scottish Premier League, Scottish Cup and Scottish League cup runs.
