Celtic's new bright pink away jersey was inspired by a match ticket

The Lisbon Lions have been remembered in the club’s new kit. Well, sort of.

CELTIC HAVE JUST launched a rather eye-catching away kit for the upcoming season.

Made by New Balance, the Scottish Premiership champions will wear a change strip of pink and black in Brendan Rodgers’ first season in charge.

According to the club, the garish colours have been inspired by the match-day ticket for the Lisbon Lions’ famous European Cup final win over Inter Milan in 1967.

“The 1967 team blazed a trail across Europe on their way to the final in Lisbon which to this day still remains one of the biggest highlights in this club’s illustrious history,” said Hoops captain Scott Brown.

“It’s an inspiration to think we are following in the footsteps of legends like these and this great history makes Celtic such a special club.”

We get it, but a ticket stub?! Random.
