Celtic star Callum McGregor has been spotted sporting what appears to be the 2020/21 home kit made by new suppliers Adidas, after prominent fan ‘Paul The Tim’ posted a picture on Twitter.

McGregor appears to be taking part in promotional shots of the new kit ahead of its official unveiling next month, when the new deal with the German sportswear company officially kicks in.
The contract, which replaces the club’s partnership with New Balance, has been reported to be worth more than £25m across multiple years (The Scottish Sun).
Their images largely match up with what’s being worn by McGregor, though clearly it’s impossible to see much of the design apart from the iconic three stripes on the top, shorts and socks.
The latest social media image suggests we are now not far away at all from seeing the club officially put their marketing weight behind the new kit, a moment that is much-anticipated by plenty of supporters.
Some fans are desperate to support the club and get their hands on the final product.
These supporters have taken to Twitter today to share their thoughts on the latest image…

Not even bothered about the top just as long as we don’t get socks like last years ever again https://t.co/oPFlD8nKNZ

The cuffs looked different from the leaked photos. Looks the same as the banding round the collar
