Rangers: Ibrox side did register special edition kit

A Rangers claim has been made regarding the club’s decision not to wear their 150th-anniversary shirt at Ibrox over the weekend in Glasgow.

What’s the talk?

Sky Sports journalist Anthony Joseph has revealed that the Gers did register their special edition jersey prior to the start of the campaign and were, therefore, able to don it on Saturday.

This came after it was suggested that they did not get permission from the SFA or SPFL to change their regular kits in favour of the anniversary shirt.

He initially Tweeted: @SkySportsNews understands the SFA and SPFL did not receive any request from Rangers to wear their special edition kit for today’s match. If a club wishes to wear a different kit from those registered at the start of the season, they would have to seek permission.

The reporter then followed that up with two further updates:Rangers have told @SkySportsNews today that they did register their special edition kit in the summer.”

“A Hampden source has now confirmed the kit was registered with the SPFL at the start of the season.”

Should Rangers wear the all-white strip?






The Ibrox faithful will surely be feeling relieved by this latest update as the saga around the incident has now been resolved.

Fans were left confused after it had initially been announced by the club that the shirt was going to be worn against Aberdeen at the weekend.

The commentators on Rangers TV were left clueless too as to the reasons behind the absence of the changed strip but this update on the story has finally provided some clarity on the situation after a puzzling weekend for the supporters.

Luckily, it also means that they still have the chance to see the team wear the kit in a Premiership match this season as it has now officially been registered.

This means that the club will have an option to celebrate 150 years by donning the all-white strip for a game, although it remains to be seen if or when they will exercise it.

This is all hypothetical at the moment and there is a long way to go before this is a viable option, but the Gers could wear it for their final home game at Ibrox, which if they secure the title ahead of Celtic prior to that match, will be quite the occasion with the strip potentially going down in Rangers history.

As a result, Gio van Bronckhorst’s side would be able to do justice to the 150th anniversary by wearing it as they lift silverware. That said, there is plenty of work left to be done to catch up on the Hoops.

How well do you know Morelos? First... who did he score his 100th goal against?

The supporters will also be intrigued to learn that Rangers did not wear their usual blue strip against Aberdeen due to any error on their part. They did not ruin their anniversary because of a pre-season administrative failure and, instead, made their decision on their own.

It would have been a worrying sign of how dealings are being handled behind the scenes had it been a case of a mistake before the start of the campaign. Therefore, fans will be pleased to know that they did not mess up in this particular situation.
