Celtic have revealed details of their special Scottish Cup Final kit.

Fifty-two years on from their greatest hour the club will wear special kit in honour of Billy McNeill and Stevie Chalmers who both passed away recently.

All of the players will wear shorts with the number 5 on the front and 9 on the back while a special tracksuit will bear both players names.

In the match immediately following the death of McNeill centre half Jozo Simunovic scored the only goal of the game against Kilmarnock. The day after his funeral Celtic clinched the SPFL title by winning 3-0 away to Aberdeen.

Neil Lennon will try to harness the emotion of the day to guide his side to a Treble Treble for the first time in the history of Scottish football.

Hearts will be trying to prevent that achievement but after finishing the season in sixth place in the SPFL and losing to Celtic in the Betfred Cup semi-final Craig Levein has his work cut out trying to create an upset.
