Kit leak website FootyHeadlines has today published amended images of the 2020/21 Celtic top, sharing new detailing and a different sponsor placement.
Back on June 11th, the reliable new strip website was the first to publish what is assumed to be the official new Adidas top.
The classic Hoops were adorned with a yellow detailing on the collar but had white sleeve cuffs, based on a prototype they had seen.
The Dafabet sponsor logo was also emblazoned across a green hoop.
You can see the old version below via a fan Twitter account.

Now, FootyHeadlines have updated their leak after seeing a new image of midfielder Callum McGregor taking part in a pre-launch photoshoot at Celtic Park.
The new image includes yellow detailing on the sleeve cuff to match the collar and a rearrangement of Dafabet’s placement, with a black lettering on white hoop scheme preferred.
All other details of the original leak are consistent with the McGregor picture.
It’s a neater and more consistent look which is sure to be a hit with supporters when it goes on sale.
That is expected to be in early July following the expiration of the club’s New Balance contract.
The deal with Adidas is reported to be worth a Scottish record amount beyond £25m (Scottish Sun), which will be a great boost to the club’s finances as we cope with the fallout of the ongoing pandemic.
FootyHeadlines have also published details of our upcoming third kit but the look of our official away effort is still a mystery and much-anticipated given the reputation of the German sportswear company.
