Last week there seemed to be fairly genuine leaks of the home top Celtic will wear next season but a modern kit deal can easily stretch to over 100 items with three full strips, goalkeeping gear and associated training kit.
In the mid-nineties Umbro introduced something very different with their ‘bumble-bee’ or Dortmund style change kit which proved popular among fans even though the form of the team took a dip on the pitch.
Nike and New Balance have both brought out their own Celtic bumble-bee kits which seem to be among the most memorable of change kits.
Earlier today one Celtic Twitter account asked for feedback on which firm had produced the best bumble-bee- within a couple of hours they had more than 200 replies to sift through!
Who done it better? Umbro, Nike or New Balance? pic.twitter.com/VJNzGt4kqR

Umbro because it was a bold original. Not saying it was nice, it was hideous. The other 2 were just lazy design as people buy for nostalgic purposes but again another couple horrible tops.
