Scotland's new away kit is...quite something. Describe it in three words? We're saying "delicious ice cream" pic.twitter.com/40VjssRp0L
The new kit designed by Adidas has been revealed and is inspired by a traditional kit from the 1940's. The kit from that era carried the colours of Lord Rosebury which were much darker than the colours on the shirt revealed today.
Lord Rosebery was an early patron of the game north of the border in the late 1880s and his racing colours were reproduced on the national team's strip after the Second World War. It was worn for the last time in a 2-0 win over France at Hampden in 1949.
One thing is for sure Scotland certainly won't suffer from not being able to see their teammates, unlike Manchester United when they played in their famous grey shirt.
As well as ice cream, the kit has also been described as making the players look like boiled sweets, rhubarb and custard or Ronald McDonald. The strip could be seen in action for the first time on the 7th September when they face Germany away in their first Euro 2016 qualifier.
