Completing an all-green trio of strips for the outfield players, the latest features a plain “vivid cactus” coloured top with black trim and black shorts.

The kit is also the latest to pay tribute to the Lisbon Lions with the special 50th anniversary crest stitched in.

Richard Wright of strip-makers New Balance said: “The third kit has traditionally included some brighter elements and this season is no exception, the eye-catching finish offering the fans something fresh. In this commemorative 50th year anniversary for Celtic we have recognised the Lisbon Lions victory on each shirt, something which we think the fans will really like.”

Scott Sinclair added: “I’m a big fan of the bright third kit, it’s something that will stand out when we wear it and I’m sure it will go down well with the fans. We’re already looking forward to getting this on the pitch next season.”
