Club colours and crest change

The club colours of Rangers F.C. are royal blue, white and red. The team's home strip invariably features a royal blue shirt (often with white and/or red trim). Traditionally this is accompanied by white shorts (often with royal blue and/or red trim) and black socks with red turn-downs.[4] However when wearing the 'home strip' Rangers will occasionally alter the shorts and socks, sometimes replacing the black socks with white ones; or replacing the white shorts and black socks combination with royal blue shorts and socks.

The basic design of Rangers away strips has changed far more than the traditional home strip. White and red have been the most common predominant colours for Rangers alternate strips, though dark and light blue have also featured highly.[5]

In recent years, Rangers have also introduced a third kit.[6] This is usually worn if both the home and away kits clash with their opponents. The colours used range from light blue to red to a tangerine.[7]
