Football: Diadora in Gers kit deal.
RANGERS are on the verge of pulling off a multi-million pound kit deal with Diadora.
The sportswear firm will have their crest on the front of the Ibrox club's shirts from the start of next season.
But Gers, whose association with current kit suppliers Nike ends in the summer, will break from tradition and manufacture the strips themselves.
Mirror Sport understands they will be made in Morroco for them by British-based firm Dewhurst.
Diadora, who produce replica strips for Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday, are keen to make their mark in the high profile football market.
They will pay Rangers around pounds 1million per season to have their brand displayed on the club's kits. And the Ibrox club will cash in further by making and selling their own strips.
