Photo Of The Day: The Popular Celtic Away Kit 2002

Today’s photo of the day is a slightly unusual choice of image in that it shows a kit rather than an action shot from a match or the stands. The chosen photo is of Henrik Larsson’s 2002/03 yellow away shirt, which proved very popular with the fans.

Not only did the top look smart and have the unique feature of faint writing (The Celtic Football Club 1888) being printed across it, but it was also something of a lucky jersey given that it was worn when the Bhoys defeated Blackburn Rovers, Stuttgart and Celta Vigo on the road (the latter did end up in a 2-1 loss, but ultimately was a victory in the sense that Celtic qualified for the next round).

Hailing from an Irish background, I grew up in Bournemouth with the good fortune to begin watching Celtic during the Martin O'Neill era. Still living on the south coast, I have a season ticket at Paradise and also travel to European away matches when possible. I have written four Celtic books since the age of 19: Our Stories & Our Songs: The Celtic Support, Take Me To Your Paradise: A History Of Celtic-Related Incidents & Events, Walfrid & The Bould Bhoys: Celtic's Founding Fathers, First Season & Early Stars, and The Holy Grounds of Glasgow Celtic: A Guide To Celtic Landmarks & Sites Of Interest. These were/are sold in Waterstones and official Celtic FC stores, and are available on Amazon.
