'Boring', 'Simple' - Rangers fans react to leaked images of new 2017/18 third kit
By James Black
Rangers new 2017/18 third kit appears to have leaked online a few days before it’s launched – and it has divided opinion among Gers fans on Twitter.
The black and blue shirt is doing the rounds on Twitter and opinions range from one extreme to another as the Gers support look to get their hands on the latest piece of merchandise from the club.
Fans have been boycotting club stock in recent years over the one-sided retail deal with Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct and have only resumed ploughing their cash into the club’s shop after a re-negotiated deal was agreed.

The previous Sports Direct deal saw the club make a pittance from each sale leading fans to formally boycott the retailer – with the club’s approval – as the retailer and club were involved in countless legal battles following a fued between Ashley and Ibrox chairman Dave King.
