Rangers partnership with Castore is turning out to be a nightmare and it looks like it is only getting worse with every passing week.
It’s been too easy to poke fun as a Celtic fan at the Castore kit shambles around Rangers over recent days. Castore and their suppliers seem to have found so many ways to get things wrong. And things got even worse on Sunday but this time in the official match. And lets just say it’ll need some very careful work with the iron to smooth this one out.
There are still doubts about the Mike Ashley and Sports Direct involvement in the kit deal. Social media has been overflowing with comments and pictures about poor quality kit, logos and letters falling off and huge variations in what’s supplied from China or Turkey when it arrives at fans homes. And a Rangers fan group has accused Castore of lying to fans.
Rangers fans are irate and mixed between a) wanting to share their views and rant about the situation with pictures of the shoddy kit as examples and b) trying to brush it all under the carpet and keep it quiet by not posting pictures as it’s too easy otherwise to be trolled relentlessly online.
So the last thing those fuming bears need right now is for the club to help the fun continue and roll on for Hoops fans and other Scottish football supporters. It’s like an endless supply of laughing gas for most or a painful trip to the dentist for the Ibrox faithful.
The latest laugh is two fold. In today’s match versus Kilmarnock, Morelos’ head wasn’t in the right place to make an appearance. So new signing Kemar Roofe started instead. Rangers fans must have had their heads in their hands when they saw the pictures across Twitter pointing out that the new strikers shirt had Roffe not Roofe emblazoned across the back for today’s game.
It seems someone at the club has a sense of humour given the media club tweet acknowledging the mistake. Their fans aren’t laughing about it though:
Join that all up with the Rangers official twitter sharing pictures of Jermaine Defoe training in a kit that supports the poor quality story:
A club crest in pieces on his kit. You’d have thought the club wouldn’t want to add to the supply of ridicule available. They aren’t laughing as much at this one now as the club tweet appears to have been deleted.
Oh dear, whatever next? Celtic fans’ sides may need a rest soon!
