Derek McInnes Has Criticised Rangers for Making Aberdeen Wear Away Kit at Ibrox

Derek McInnes Has Criticised Rangers for Making Aberdeen Wear Away Kit at Ibrox

Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes has criticised Rangers for making his side wear their grey away kit at Ibrox at the weekend.

The Dons usually play in their traditional red home strip against the Gers whether the match is in Glasgow, or the Granite City, but Sunday’s match saw McInnes’s men in their alternative uniforms.

A Premiership team wearing their away jerseys for a fixture away from home might not seem like a particularly odd concept to most fans, but McInnes wasn’t too happy about the decision and explained the SPFL’s logic behind it as he met the media this afternoon.

Ahead of Aberdeen’s clash with Celtic at Pittodrie this weekend, via the Sun, McInnes said: “We were told we had to wear grey.

“Rangers clearly don’t like us in red and they insisted their goalkeeper wear orange. That is the reason.

“I have never known it in all my years.

“But the SPFL backed Rangers and allowed them to wear the orange kit.”

So, there you have it; it was all to do with Allan McGregor’s goalkeeper kit – much to McInnes’s annoyance.

What do you think of his comments, and the decision?
