The shirts hark back to the kit worn by the ‘Lisbon Lions’, the Celtic side which won the European cup 50 years ago in Lisbon.
To commemorate the anniversary, the new kit features a specially designed club crest, which pays tribute to the team which defeated Italian giants Inter Milan back on the 25th of May, 1967.
