After much online speculation since the official home kit reveal, what appears to be the real Celtic away kit for the 2024/25 campaign leaked earlier this week.

Assuming what's out there now is legitimate, prolific leak site FootyHeadlines called it right last year with its yellow-and-green colour palette claim – a look that is indeed reminiscent of the Seville-era alternate jersey from over 20 years ago.

Since signing up with sports manufacturer Adidas ahead of the 2020/21 campaign, Celtic have experimented with an alternative badge – a standalone oversized four-leaf clover that stands in place of the club's otherwise recognised emblem.

That season, the club's black and light green third kit used the alternate crest. The following season, during Ange Postecoglou's first year as Celtic manager, it featured on the forest green and gold away kit.

And next season, again assuming the aforementioned Celtic away kit leak is correct, the same oversized badge returns – this time with more detail than before, in dark green with a lighter, Celtic shade of green denoting the four-leaf clover's veins.

Depending on which corner of the Celtic-supporting internet you peruse, you'll see fans hailing or hating the new kit, with many drawing comparisons between it and Norwich City's home jersey, all the while suggesting Adam Idah will feel at home should he make his move north permanent.

For what it's worth, I like it. And, better still, the use of the detailed oversized badge in this way appears to mirror a Nike-made polo shirt from the 2010/11 season – one of my own favourites that was popular among supporters at the time.

Back then, I recall many supporters, myself included, labelling this design as kit-worthy, but the idea that the club would shake up the age-old crest seemed unlikely if not impossible.

Now, however, 14 years and a rival brand switch later, it seems we're sort-of getting our wish.

With a million and one Celtic third kit concepts doing the rounds at the moment, who knows how that ensemble will turn out. Or, indeed, how many more special edition fourth jerseys the club still has up its sleeve.
