The shirt is a fun, modern interpretation of one of Scotland’s most iconic jerseys and pays homage to the colours of Lord Rosebery.
First worn in the 1880s and continued throughout the next two decades, the national team played in the primrose hoops which were synonymous as the racing colours of racehorse owner Archibald Philip Primrose, Lord Rosebery, who was an early patron of Scottish football.
The unique colour combination was resurrected as an away strip after World War II and will now be used by Gordon Strachan’s side on the march to France for the European Championship campaign.
The Adidas kit features a newly designed full-colour crest, framed by an iconic pink band, with four further yellow bands gradiating through the jersey. It’s reminiscent of another fans’ favourite – the Scotland UEFA Euro 92 away jersey.
A button-down collar, three pink stripes and pink trims on the neck and sleeve hem complete the cool new look.
Scotland captain Scott Brown posed in the kit today at the official launch which will be worn by Gordon Strachan’s men in Group D where they will face Germany, Poland, Republic of Ireland, Georgia and Gibraltar.
The Scots also face the Poles next week in an international challenge match in Warsaw, where the Tartan Army may get their first glimpse of their team in the alternate outfit.
Brown said: "It will certainly make us stand out from the crowd, and that’s exactly what we will need to do to qualify for Euro 2016. There is a lot of optimism ahead of this campaign and the new away kit will help us make a bright start to the qualifying campaign.”
