Celtic have offered an update on the ‘limited edition 120 years of Hoops jersey’ that was launched a week ago.

Last Friday, the much-hyped kit was finally unveiled and it proved to be well worth the wait. Supporters immediately went online to pre-order the belter with demand forcing the online shop in to a queuing system.

They say that a “very limited number” of the jerseys will be available to buy in person at the Celtic Park, Argyle Street, Braehead and Belfast stores from Friday.

Further to that, the club say they are working with Adidas to bring any remaining stock to official Celtic stores. Any shirts that they are able to source will be available exclusively in-store with no more sales online.

While that’s a blow for online shoppers, you can’t really grumble given the kit has a ‘limited’ selling-point.

It’s not totally clear just how many of the special kits were made but it seems like they have been immensely popular amongst the Celtic support.

Given that Celtic and Adidas know there is a thirst from supporters, and many will be disappointed to have missed out, you wonder if they’ll find a way to release more in the future.

It’s certainly going to be interesting to find out just how popular the kit has been from looking around Celtic Park next weekend.
