They may not be going to Euro 2016, but Scotland have muscled in on the raft of new kits for next year regardless with the launch of a brand new home and away strip.

As has probably already become abundantly clear, the home kit is a daring tartan affair which has split opinion (to put it politely)….

The Scottish FA made their big announcement yesterday on Twitter…

Here’s just a sample of the initial feedback left under said Tweet…

“I think I’m going to be sick” – @Zabacadabra

“Jesus…” – @Supershug1910

“That is minging” – @Susie03

“We don’t deserve to qualify with kits like that” – @liam_Watson72

“Disgusting kit” – @bryab655

“What a mess. Just horrible” – @SalesBud

“Massive let-down…absolute joke kit” – @adidaspumagc

“This is disgusting” – @actualjohn

“The prominent tartan is a great twist!” – @carluke21

On second thoughts, maybe the opinion isn’t quite as split as we first thought.

Having upset all and sundry with their new home kit, the SFA then went for double jeopardy by rolling out their new away kit – a demure, subtle little neon pink number…

This nonsense replacing the current yellow and pink striped away strip that Scotland have been forced to bear for the past year. We think we’ll let Iain MacIntosh have the last word…

Quite.

    What?! The home kit is fantastic!

  2. Sjakie Meulemans says:

    I think the look on Scott Brown’s face is more offensive than the shirt. To be honest, the shirt is pretty great.

  3. Alberto says:

    What’s with all the fuss? I rather like it. Oh, and with regard to the away kit – get with the times. It’s perfectly reasonable for men to wear neon-pink.

  4. Murray says:

    I’m not seeing what the fuss is about.

  5. Tel says:

    I don’t get it. That home shirt is great. I wish Wales had those white sleeves.

  6. Jeremia says:

    That might be a ploy financed by the SRU. “Hey, laddie, rather than dreaming of playing in a pink in the future, go and run about with this egg-shaped ball, you will get a proper shirt then.”

  7. Inno says:

    I don’t mind the colour of the away kit, it’s just that the design of it looks like a training top! And home one? Jeebus… all it needs is a black and white picture of a kid playing with a hoop and a stick and it’s be a great shortbread tin.

  8. Bruno says:

    It’s alright… But no one will see the kit as I don’t remember Scotland playing any major competition since the 90s. It seems like a waste of time for the designers. No one will see their work.
