Celtic first wore yellow and black back in the late 1990s. Of course, that wasn’t very long ago, but if we dig a little deeper we’re reminded that the use of quartered panels on a team strip dates back to the team’s away kit of 1926/27. Take those two bits of club history in one shot and you’ve got the basic elements of the new Celtic third kit, unveiled by Nike just yesterday.
We’re familiar with the cutting edge recycled polyester body already…. so with this shirt, we’re really just focused on aesthetic. Nice, in many respects, to see a teams tradition referenced without pandering to overt heritage pulls.
