    I couldn't believe how big UA was over there, everyone was wearing it.
    i don't like it all, it all looks like gym/training gear to me.

    Clearly you are not actually reading what was posted. This is about whether under armour is selling a rangers product.

    No one is buying anything from sports direct it came up on a search engine.

    No short memories bigger picture.

    I'd be over the moon if we signed a deal with Under Armour, Nike or Adidas.

    Not quite the same as clicking a link to the DR. Hits on their site is not the same as media sites

    Thanks for looking Rangersista. Does your jacket have a proper club badge on the left chest above semper paratus?

    If it's exactly as pictured in the SD catalogue then I think SD have pulled a c*nty trick on us. Selling non Rangers merchandise from the club shop that fools Rangers supporters into buying it. It just looks like Rangers merch because it has "Rangers semper paratus" embroidered on the chest. Not a single penny of any sales would go to Rangers.

    Think the training wear stuff looks excellent.

    It's a quality product.

    Their Spurs kits in the past have been excellent as well.

    Certainly a brand we could do with having on board, most definitely.

    They also appear to go for the timeless classic approach. You don't see many monstrosities from their side on the football kit front.

    A Twitter account belonging to the sportswear giant suggested they were preparing to supply a new kit for the Ibrox club who are in the midst of a major falling out with Puma and Sport Direct.

    Responding to a Tweet asking when Under Armour were releasing the new Rangers kit the verified customer service account 'Ask Under Armour' replied: “No set dates, but they will be coming. Stay tuned in the weeks to follow!”

    To be in the position of being able to negotiate with the big kit players is simply excellent.Hope the club secure a right good deal.

    There's no RFC or lion crest but as I said, it's an official Rangers licensed product.

    There are over 800 units of this Rangers jacket available to buy from an online Czech clothes catalogue:

    http://www.cilivcil.cz/nov%C3%BD-typ...iUfB5d/p_2903/

    But it is also being sold officially in the megastore & SD from next year:

    http://www.rangersmegastore.com/unde...lcode=60005003

    From manufacturing and retail contractual positions this seems odd. But it's a Charles Green legacy deal so that explains everything.

    AS is this Lyle and Scott polo http://www.rangersmegastore.com/lyle...lcode=55000722

    There are loads of items that appear on the megastore site because it's basically a cut down sportsdirect.com!

    This jacket has nothing to do with the club beyond the name.

    This is a big deal. Anything we buy from the megastore we expect 90% of profit from the sale to Rangers. If non Rangers merchandise is being sold it must be clear no proceeds from sales will go to Rangers. Then supporters can be sure to avoid these and buy only official merchandise that helps Rangers financially instead.

    It's 75% of the profits but I get your point.

    If you click on the puma section there's even a French shirt there form Stade Rennais or something. Needs to be sorted, really.

    I hope we do go with them next season. The Southampton and Spurs kits have all been tremendous since going to Under Armour.

    What is the margin on a football top ?

    Must be pretty big.

    He's posting it because of the reasons stated, not encouraging people to buy. Nutcase.
