Celtic are to wear a special striped home strip next season to mark the 130-year anniversary of the club.
The Hoops were founded in 1888 and have famously been wearing that kit ever since.
But in a bid to do something different in their 130th year, we can exclusively reveal that the team will wear green and white stripes rather than Hoops.
It’s inspired by Barcelona’s decision to move away from their usual stripes to Hoops last season.
And it’s believed the club’s board were persuaded to change from their traditional design for one season after seeing the success of Real Betis going Hoops for one game this term.
A source at the club said: “We’ve seen the success of both Barcelona and Real Betis with a change to their traditional strip design and believe we’ve got the necessary support of the fanbase to make the change.
“All clubs have to move forward and adapt to the climate, but we can assure the supporters that we’ll continue to wear our famous hoops beyond this anniversary switch.”
The special edition striped shirt will go on sale from the start of next season and will cost fans £100 to buy.
