A number of Celtic fans have been left worrying about the club’s kit manufacturing deal with Adidas after the Arsenal leak.
Last season is done and dusted after Celtic were crowned champions of Scotland for the ninth straight time as it became clear that it was unsafe to resume football in the middle of a global pandemic. The sights of the Hoops fans will now be on next season when the Glasgow club will have the chance of creating history by completing 10IAR – the Holy Grail of Scottish football.
Both Celtic and Rangers are active in the transfer market at the moment. Celtic have already announced the departures of Eboue Kouassi and Calvin Miller as they will look to form th strongest possible squad for next season. Rangers on the other hand have managed to sign Ianis Hagi while also letting go of a number of their players.
And while the transfer market comes with its excitement, one thing that most football fans look forward to before the start of the new season is the kit reveal. This one is going to be especially special for the Celtic fans as they will be entering a lucrative 5-year deal with Adidas next season, a deal that broke all previous records in Scottish football.
But some of that excitement looks to have been dampened over the past few weeks after a number of underwhelming kit designs of different clubs have been leaked on social media. And as Footy Headlines leaked Arsenal’s away kit for next season, a number of Celtic fans took to Twitter to raise their concerns:
At the end of the day, Celtic will be getting paid a lot of money from this kit deal so that is always a positive. But then again, next season is going to be very special as the Hoops will be challenging for 10-in-a-row. And no fan will like to see the players turn up for the occasion in some atrocious experimental kit.
So Adidas, please keep it simple.
