New name on the back of Rangers shirts – Socomec

Rangers have secured a new name for the back of the shirts, which sees Socomec as the latest sponsor to be unveiled.

Sadly on this occasion it’s not a new arrival for Giovanni van Bronckorst’s side but the news seems to provide a welcome replacement now that former ‘shirt back’ partner ‘Sportemongo’ is no longer. in activity.

Supporters who purchased new shirts with the now defunct NFT branding can now have the new sponsor logo added free of charge, as outlined in the club’s statement which included:

“Rangers Football Club is delighted to announce an exciting new partnership with global electrical equipment, engineering and manufacturing group, Socomec.”

“Through this partnership, Socomec will see its brand featured as the back shirt sponsor of the men’s first team for the upcoming 2022/23 season.”

Founded in France in 1922, the company is an electrical equipment, engineering and manufacturing company, specializing in low voltage energy performance. It’s not a family brand that most were already aware of, but it has a presence in the UK as part of 28 subsidiaries around the world.

This update just marks another item on the to-do list for the James Bisgrove-led business team and provides the final reminder of the ills of ‘modern football’, but the real action from a fan perspective is fine. Of course, on the pitch, Tuesday brought further speculation about potential new signings at Ibrox in the form of Antonio Colak and Ivan Lepinjica.

As we head into later in the week and get closer to the start of pre-season on Monday, further transfer activity is likely and to be expected over the coming days and weeks as Rangers prepare for the 22/23.
