It is absolutely clear from the statement issued by Rangers that the situation regarding official Rangers merchandise has not been resolved to their satisfaction. As a result we would urge supporters not to purchase the official kit from ANY outlets where it goes on sale.
It has been clear for some time that Sports Direct continue to treat both our football club and our supporters with utter contempt. It is extremely disappointing to see Puma follow suit by making this season’s kit available for sale without reaching a satisfactory agreement with Rangers.
We have been used to this type of behaviour from Sports Direct and Mike Ashley but it now appears Puma are following suit. They have made no attempt to consider the views of Rangers supporters and no attempt to engage with their customers over a deal that they are an integral part of. They appear to value their relationship with Sports Direct above their responsibility to Rangers supporters and football fans in general.
We share the desire of our fellow supporters to once again be able to purchase replica strips and wear them with pride but we would reiterate that purchasing this strip will not assist Rangers Football Club in any way. In fact we believe it will damage the club’s attempts to find a satisfactory solution to this issue.
