Made using Umbro’s ‘Thermo Regulation Technology’ ahead of the 2006-07 season; the dimensions of this shirt lend themselves to a very fitted size medium shirt and could comfortably fit a size small.
In Umbro’s 2nd home shirt they manufactured for Rangers; the British kit supplier were successfully able to create a fresh design after their successful debut entry! While the predecessor leant heavily on white and red trims and accents, the 2006-07 season home shirt minimised the number of accents with red slashes and white blocks on the shoulders are the only accompaniments to the classic blue Rangers backdrop. Also notable was the return of the Umbro diamond after the word ‘Umbro’ had been written previously. The placement of the vinyl diamond sits just below the white apelet on the right-hand side of the shirt, with the asymmetrical design being one of the standout features of Umbro’s 2006 released templates.
After 4 and a half seasons, the Alex McLeish era ended trophyless culminating with a disappointing 3rd place Scottish Premier League finish; their lowest ever league finish since the 1987-88 season!
Paul Le Guen, the mastermind of Olympique Lyonnais’ 3 Ligue 1 title triumphs between 2002-2005, was announced as early as March 2006 that he would be taking over from McLeish ahead of the 2006-07 season. He would bring in a whole host of players from all over Europe as part of his rebuild of the squad.
While he would enjoy an unbeaten 6 game start to life at Rangers, he would leave the club by mutual consent in January 2007, with the club having been dumped out of the Scottish League Cup and crucially, some 17 points behind league leaders Celtic!
Walter Smith returned to the club to replace Le Guen and he would oversee a fine 2007 portion of the season where his team were unbeaten in their first 13 league games under his stewardship to eventually steer Rangers to a 2nd place finish and negate the gap between themselves and Celtic to just 8 points once the season was said and done.
Elsewhere, the club would be disappointingly eliminated from the Scottish Cup on 07/01/2007 in what was Ian Durrant’s sole game in charge of the club during the transition between Le Guen to Smith, meanwhile, the UEFA Cup campaign would culminate in a 4th Round exit against Osasuna.
The notable players that season were:
Dado Prso, Nacho Novo, Filip Sebo, William Stranger, Steven Lennon, Lee Martin, Hamed Namouchi, Makhtar N’Diaye, Charlie Adam, Chris Burke, Gavin Rae, Kevin Thompson, Jeremy Clement, Brahim Hemdani, Barry Ferguson, Thomas Buffel, Fernando Ricksen, Andy Webster, Olivier Bernard, David Weir, Marvin Andrews, Sasa Papac, Robert Malcolm, Ugo Ehiogu, Phil Bardsley, Ian Murray, Karl Svensson, Alan Hutton, Steven Smith, Julien Rodriguez, Allan McGregor, Stefan Klos
