Stan Collymore has a soft spot for Celtic.....but not their new home kit.

Stan Collymore has admitted on Twitter that he isn't a huge fan of the new Celtic kit.

On this shirt, the hoops on the Celtic jersey don't go all the way around - they're broken up at the shoulder and sleeve.

 

Considering that one of Celtic's nicknames is 'the Hoops', Collymore might have a point.

Quite a lot of the club's supporters had similar grievances over the last home shirt, which also had disconnected hoops.

Then again, Celtic won a third successive domestic treble in that attire and if Neil Lennon's side make it a fourth triple in a row come May, no supporter will care about the design.
