    Could you please tell me whether also this contruction is acceptable?
    ...aber sie hatten nur rotes.
    If you're still talking about shirts (or other count-nouns), then Arukami has answered the question. But if your question is whether this phrase is possible in general, then I would expect that the answer is yes, when the reference is to a non-count noun. Offhand I can't think of a neuter non-count noun that makes sense here, so I'll try this:
    Ich möchte mal grünes Blut kosten, sagte der Vampir, aber diese Menschen, die haben nur rotes.
