MOST Celtic Supporters will this evening be relieved to discover that the apparently ‘leaked’ Celtic shirt for next season – featuring the addition of FIVE stars to celebrate the club reaching 50 league wins (not out) – is actually a FAKE!
The respected football kits site Footy Headlines this evening posted a clarification that the image that has spread like wild-fire across the media and Celtic sites earlier this evening is a fake.
“An an image doing the rounds of a supposed ‘leaked Celtic shirt’ is doing the rounds on social media today. It features the famous Footy Headlines watermark, but is is nevertheless not the real deal…” the site stated.
⚠ FAKE Celtic 19-20 Home Kit With Footy Headlines Watermark 'Leaked': https://t.co/TWF29yOpYP

“The ‘leaked’ Celtic 19-20 home kit has been mocked up by a prankster who added a Footy Headlines watermark to add credibility and fool people. However, we can confirm that this is not our picture, and that is 100% a fake,” they confirmed.
“The Celtic kit on the image features five stars to signify Celtic’s 50th league trophy. It is unlikely that the real Celtic 19-20 kit will feature five stars.
“We have no information about the actual New Balance Celtic 2019-2020 kit yet.”
This has actually given Celtic and New Balance some brilliant – and free – market research because it seems clear that the vast majority of supporters are against adding additions stars to the Celtic shirt.
As a support we are more that happy to have one star. The Celtic Star. Good name for a website…
Earlier this evening we posted a Poll giving you the chance to vote for either the 5 star option shown on the Fake shirt or the one star that we are all so proud of.
You can add your own vote HERE.
As of 11pm this evening 984 votes had been cast with 840 (85%) voting for ONE star and 144 supporters (you could only vote one) (15%) choosing the FIVE star option (fake or not).
Over on Twitter there was a similar poll which was conducted by We Earned Our Star. They had 753 votes with 75% opting for ONE star and 25% choosing the five star version.
I would not want 5 stars on our tops.
We earned our⭐star. Do not take away from the big🏆cup win.
Would you want 5 stars on out top?
