Rangers fans have been given a first sighting of the new Castore training kit which will be worn by staff and players as they return to Auchenhowie and what will be a unique situation for Steven Gerrard and his team.

The Ibrox media team provided a series of teasers before finally unveiling the tops that will be worn with the Liverpool based company only being given a matter of weeks to produce the range since the new deal was announced in May.

The kit received a varied reception despite only a brief glimpse of the range and the time that the company has had to produce them, bizarrely, the fact that the badges are embossed rather than embroidered appeared to rankle some amongst the Gers faithful.

There were also some eagle eyed fans that noticed that the images that have been released do in fact match those of the leaked images from a few weeks ago.

And it wouldn’t be Rangers social media without James Tavernier getting pelters, with the void created by a lack of competitive action causing a few fans to call for a change of leadership on the park after an image of his training top was provided with the caption – “ready for the Captain”.

True or false, Graeme Souness's first signing as Rangers manager was Terry Butcher?

Despite some of the negativity, they were of course vastly outnumbered by fans of the Ibrox club just desperate to be able to buy kit once again knowing that the money is going to the club and not into the back pocket of Mike Ashley, the club revealed at the weekend that they are having to pursue Elite in the courts for over Β£3million due to them from previous sales under the old agreement – funds that could prove essential in upgrading the current playing squad as they attempt to regain their place on top of Scottish football.
