Rangers FC celebrates 150 years with 2021-22 home kit – SportsLogos.Net
Scottish Premiership team Rangers FC are celebrating their past while hoping there will be more gold to come in their new home kits for the 2021-22 season.
The Glasgow-based club unveiled the new kits, made by UK high-performance sportswear brand Castore, on Saturday 26 June. The shirts are predominantly blue, with white vertical stripes, white collars and white cuffs. The club monogram, Castore logo and sponsor logo are all rendered in gold.
The club’s RFC monogram is embroidered in gold on the left chest along with a ribbon with the years 1872 and 2022 on either side of “150 YEARS”. The RFC monogram has traditionally appeared on the shirt, sometimes in a shield, instead of the official club logo.
Since the Rangers won their 50th Scottish Premiership title in 2002-03, five stars have appeared above the monogram. But for this anniversary kit, those stars have been moved to the back of the shirt, near the collar, and above a second sponsor logo.
According to the Rangers website, the kit includes several nods to the history of the club:
Its classic V-neck design takes inspiration from some of the club’s most popular and iconic kits from the 50s and 60s worn by Jim Baxter, while its thin white stripes pay homage to the shirts of the early 80s worn by the heroes like Davie Cooper.
The shorts that go with this kit are white with blue stripes on the sides. The socks are black with red cuffs. Both feature gold RFC monograms.
Because the main jersey sponsor 32Red is an online casino, the youth jerseys the Rangers sell on their website have a different sponsor on the front: Utilita, an electricity and gas supplier.
The Rangers also unveiled their home goalie outfit on Saturday. It’s yellow with a tonal abstract stripe pattern on the front. Sponsor logos are rendered in black, as are the club monogram, anniversary ribbon and five stars. The shorts and socks are also yellow.
