Rangers midfielder John Lundstram seen wearing potential new kit in leaked video clip
Rangers midfielder John Lundstram has been seen wearing what appears to be a new kit for next season in a leaked video clip.
The former Sheffield United man is pictured wearing a black strip with blue trim in what would likely be an away or third set of colours, in a video clip floating about online.
It appears to be the second time in recent weeks that as yet unreleased merchandise has been seen, after a mix up reportedly saw fans sent the wrong one when they had ordered a legends top worn at the 150th anniversary game against a World XI (Daily Record).
Lundstram is seen modelling the previously unseen black kit for a photographer while standing in front of a white back drop.
Next season is set to be the third year with supplier Castore as the Light Blues’ strip manufacturer.
It’s not an overly professional look for the new merchandise to keep leaking out through unofficial avenues.
Considering the upset that has arisen recently around how the club makes decisions at boardroom level, they could do without anything else making them look bad.
Compared to the Sydney Super Cup debacle this looks to primarily be a problem with Castore, but it won’t please the suits at Ibrox.
That said, it is the time of year that potential shirts start appearing purporting to be next years colours, just usually not with current first-team players in them.
It is part of the players’ media obligations to be pictured wearing new merchandise, but clearly they haven’t got time to worry about leaks right now.
Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side are in the Scottish Cup final, the semi-finals of the Europa League, and harbour faint hopes of defending their league title.
So if this is to be one of the looks used next year they will hope it is as defending champions in at least one of those competitions.
In other Rangers news, one former club hero expects a current one to call it quits in the summer.
