Kit chat is at Fever Pitch among Celtic fans with official Adidas kit anticipated next Wednesday.

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.

For generations Celtic were part of the Umbro stable but that changed in 2005 when Nike took over with the hoops produced by New Balance over the last five years.

Adidas and Nike are the biggest players in the business with Celtic’s first ever deal with the German firm eagerly anticipated.

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!
