The Scottish national team didn’t leave it long after their tough Euro 2016 draw to make an ‘exciting’ announcement regarding their kit.
Much to the disappointment of many a Scotsman, they released a design which resembles a fruit salad sweet, pink and orange.

Skipper Scott Brown admitted that the new kits means that he has no excuse for not picking out his team-mates any more.
The release provoked a Twitter tirade, with a number of rather creative takes on the new strip.
That new Scotland away kit has 'Blue Peter Competition Ages 7-10 Category Runner-Up' written all over it.

Never fear though Scotland. The last time the tartan army played in pink they emerged victorious over Germany, beating them 1-0, and they’ll be hoping that history will repeat itself in this manner.
