Castore today revealed the Rangers Football Club 2021/22 home kit for the team’s upcoming Scottish Premiership, domestic cup and UEFA Champions League seasons. The shirt recognizes Gers 150th Anniversary via a classy golden scroll crest.
Rangers FC players Glen Kamara, James Tavernier, Nathan Patterson Megan Bell and Kirsty Howat modeled the 21/22 kit in a launch video that the club says “highlights the relentless attitude, determination and belief required for Rangers to win their second title in two years.”
According to Rangers: The shirt includes several nods to the team’s iconic history. Its classic V-neck design is inspired by some of the club’s most popular and iconic kits from the 50s and 60s worn by the likes of Jim Baxter, while its thin white stripes pay homage to the shirts from the early 80s donned by heroes such as Davie Cooper.
As well as going gold for the 150th anniversary, Rangers’ iconic scroll crest has been adorned with a ribbon in the style of the commemorative mosaic on Ibrox’s famous Bill Struth Main Stand. The crest proudly displays “1872 – 150 Years – 2022” and the five stars, which represents the club’s “First to Fifty” league titles achievement, have been re-positioned to the back of the shirt to allow the scroll crest to be larger and in keeping with the heritage theme of the new shirt.
Rangers FC first high-profile match in their 2021/22 Castore home kit will be a friendly against Arsenal FC in August. Manager Steven Gerrard’s and his team kick off their Premiership season against Livingston on July 31.
