Rangers fell up woefully (and almost impressively) short. They limped to a 0-0 result against Stirling, but the scoreline was not the most embarrassing thing. read more »
It seems strange that a Scottish side would design their new away shirts on the home shirt of a Turkish team, but that just underlines the effect that Eskisehirspor had on the Saints when they met during their Europa League qualifier last year.
The initiative is due to the request of fan Kevin Heller, who was so impressed by the hospitality, spirit and sportsmanship of the Eskisehirspor players, fans and officials led to him making the suggestion to St Johnstone.
St Johnstone chairman Steve Brown explains the decision:
“Fans and club officials really hit it off over the two games. We were treated like royalty over there and we did our best to show them true Scottish hospitality when they came to Perth.
“Both clubs were making the most of their European experience and when one of our fans, Kevin Heller, wrote to the club suggesting that we could adopt their red and black colours for our away kit for next season we were delighted to go for it.”
