Spot The Difference: New Rangers Away Shirt vs 1980-83 England Home Shirt
Many Glasgow Rangers fans may not be too pleased with the new design of the club’s away shirt. Manufactured by Umbro, the shirt looks very similar to the classic England shirt that the national team wore in the 1982 World Cup in Spain.
It makes you wonder if some Rangers fans will refuse to buy the shirt because of its similarity to England’s shirt.
Rangers wore the shirt for the first time today in their 1-0 away win against Falkirk in the Scottish Premier League.
The England shirt in question was designed by Admiral. In the 1982 World Cup, England progressed to the second round but ultimately got knocked out of the tournament when they drew Spain 0-0.
England wore the Admiral shirt 45 times between 1980 to 1983 before the FA changed to Umbro in 1984.
