Images purporting to be Celtic’s new home and third kits for the 2020/21 campaign have leaked online. Footyheadlines are generally reliable when it comes to new shirts so these are likely to be legitimate.
The home shirt does have a pretty generic look to it but kit manufacturers Adidas have stayed faithful with their traditional design. The third kit is more interesting, although the black with green luminance trimming is unlikely to be to everyone’s taste.
Supporters on Twitter certainly had a mixed reaction to the two kits:
She is a belter

Home is decent, third away is a belter.

Probably the most interesting design choice by Adidas is the shamrock logo used on the third kit, rather than the full Celtic badge, which is definitely a departure.
We won’t know for sure, though, whether these are the actual kits until after July 1st when Adidas officially take over from New Balance to become Celtic’s official kit manufacturer. The deal is said to be worth £30m over five years.
