Celtic have unveiled their new European kit, designed with a hat-tip to the club’s iconic bumblebee jerseys of the past.
The Hoops have worn lime green/yellow and black previously in 1996, 1997, 1998, 2009, 2010 and 2011.
And they’ve brought it back for the European campaign of the 2015/16 season after teaming up with new kit manufacturers New Balance again.

It’s the third strip released as part of their partnership with the brand and it’s sure to get diehard fans excited.
Captain Scott Brown knows how flamboyant the design is – but he admits it’s just perfect for them.
European nights are a big part of this club; it’s what the players and fans crave.
The lads are looking to make a big impression and this new kit gets us well on our way to achieving that. It’s a loud design but so are our own fans – I know they will love it!
The kit incorporates NB Dry, technology that helps keep the body cool and dry whilst being active. The moisture wicking fabric releases moisture away from the body, making it fast-drying and it is anatomically fitted to form around the player’s body shape for ease of movement. NB Flex technology, a fibre construction that provides enhanced stretch for a less restrictive garment, is incorporated into the goalkeeper kit to help with motion and fit.
Craig Gordon will also have a new kit to wear on the European stage, with New Balance releasing his all-black strip.
The new kit will be made available in-store and online at www.celticsuperstore.co.uk from August 13 exclusively (for UK and Ireland customers) for four weeks.
