RANGERS and Castore have today opened the doors on the new Ibrox shop in a landmark moment in their retail partnership.

The Light Blues clinched a multi-million pound deal with the Liverpool-based sportswear experts earlier this summer and Castore have seen huge demand for the home and away kits that Steven Gerrard’s side have sported so far this term.

Rangers’ merchandise space at Ibrox has undergone a complete revamp in recent weeks and supporters were given their first glimpse of the rebranded ‘Rangers Store’ at the launch event on Thursday morning.

And Castore co-founder Tom Beahon believes a major milestone has been reached as many fans get set to spend their cash on club products for the first time in several years.

“It is a massive moment in the partnership between Rangers and Castore,” Beahon said. “And I think a massive moment for the fans as well.

“We said from the start of this partnership that the football club deserves a store and the fans deserve a store that they can really call their own and that is exactly what they will have.

“We have invested a significant amount – about £250,000 – in completely overhauling the store, both the interior and the exterior.

“It will look very different as to how it did under the previous partner. I can’t wait to see what the fans think of that.

“We really wanted to create an Ibrox store that was in line with other leading European football clubs and hopefully that is what we have achieved.”
