No metro at any airports... 2 main terminals: Sheremetievo - about 30-45 min by must to Rechnoy Vokzal station, then - about 40 min to Teatralnaya station; from Domodedovov - take an exppress train (40 min) to Paveletsky terminal and the same metro station, from there - just 2 stops to Teatralnaya.

What will be your terminal?

Sheremetyevo to Red Square by taxi is 40min at night and 1-2.5 hours during the day.

Sheremetyevo to Rechnoy Vokzal metro station is 30-60min by bus or minibus + 25min (9 stops) to Teatralnaya metro station. Follow the green line direct.

we are going to the fame from SVO airport and are thinking of taking in the red square and kremlin

to get From SVO take a minibus ("marshrutka") going to nearest metro station Rechnoy Vokzal (GREEN LINE, north) - 70 roubles . It takes about 30 minutes (but longer if traffic jams)

Then go by metro to red line at okkotnyy ryad. (Kremlin). 1-way metro ticket costs 19 roubles. It takes about 45 min.

good luck, have a safe trip

A couple points of clarification:

When you take the green line from Rechnoy Vokzal Metro station to the Teatralnaya Metro station, you can either surface at Teatralnaya, which will bring you to street level near the Bolshoi Theater, and about 2 blocks from the Kremlin/Red Square, or you can stay underground and walk through the underground walkway to Okhotny Ryad Metro Station, and then surface from that station which will bring you up to the street within view of the Kremlin. When heading from Kremlin to the stadium, you will want to enter the Metro at the Okhotny Ryad station (it is the red-line station) and take the red line to Sportivnaya.

Note that Ploschad Revolutsii Metro Station also interconnects with Okhotny Ryad and Teatralnaya, but I don't recommend surfacing from the Ploschad Revolutsii station, since one of the exits from that station can put you on the street in a location from which it can be difficult to know which way to go, if you don't already know your way around. From Okhotny Ryad, it is simple, since you can actually see the Kremlin. From Teatralnaya, it is pretty easy - just go to the wide, busy street near the Metro exit and take a right. After 100 meters or so, you'll see the Kremlin.
