There’s One Aspect of the New Celtic Kit Fans Aren’t Very Happy With

 

Celtic unveiled their new home kit yesterday, and the bulk of the club’s supporters seem absolutely delighted with it, but there’s one aspect of the shirt that hasn’t quite won everybody over.

The Hoops unveiled their new home strip in-front of around 3,000 spectators outside their Parkhead stadium, and revealed the fresh design which pays tribute to the 1967 European Cup winning ‘Lisbon Lions’ side, 50 years on from the historic triumph.

Included is a new, one-off club crest which is a specific homage to the club’s most successful and greatest-ever team, but some fans are pretty disappointed that it isn’t embroidered.

Manufacturers New Balance have opted for a printed badge, which many supporters know can be damaged quite easily after a few washes.

Moreover, an embroidered crest would’ve just looked a bit classier, wouldn’t it?

The reaction on social media seems pretty unequivocal – but what do you think?

Does having a printed badge really make that big a difference?

Let us know in the comments section below…
