Celtic have unveiled their new away kit for this season - and it has a historic twist.

The Parkhead club will wear a bright white top with bottle green trim at selected games on the road this season with the club claiming the design is a nod to its origins.

The Celtic cross replaces with the familiar Hoops crest, mirroring the emblem sported on the first ever kit worn by the Glasgow side.

Celtic said: Showcasing the club’s Irish heritage, the Celtic Cross crest returns to the kit, an homage to the same design on the first ever Celtic jersey.

"The new away kit has been launched as part of the brand new campaign for 2018/19, ‘Only the Bold’, representing that community has always been a big part of Celtic. The Bold Bhoys have always been a family club – as one Club, we face every challenge, always boldly.

"The shirt features a subtle tonal tartan design set against White and Eden Green, as well as top shoulder bonded tape, satin stitch appliqued club crest and a button flat knit collar with contrasting tipping.

"Eden Green shorts complete the look, featuring a concealed stretch fabric insert which also runs down the side seam of the shirt. The hooped socks feature an elasticated ankle zone and 2x2 rib Achilles region with cushioned protection. An additional cushioned heel zone and vented cushioned footbed and toe section have been designed to help players play with power, comfort and extra support."

Pictures have been released of Kieran Tierney, Callum McGregor, Scott Brown, Olivier Ntcham and Mikael Lustig wearing the kit.

Tierney added: “The new kit looks fantastic. When we’re playing away from home, we want to represent our great club the best we can.

"It really captures the spirit of Celtic and I can’t wait to wear it on the pitch for the first time. I’m sure our fans will love it too.”
