FOOTBALL SCOTLAND 🔵 Green Brigade inspire kit launch as Celtic fan group honoured by South Americans

Club Deportivo Palestino have paid tribute to Celtic’s ultras by launching a new green and white hooped kit named ‘the Green Brigade’.

The South American outfit last night unveiled a new third strip which features the iconic hoops and a four leaf clover. The shirt – designed by sportswear manufacturer Capelli Sport, resembles the Parkhead club’s current home top and also features a Palestine flag.

CD Palestino – who currently sit fourth in the Chilean Primera Division – have released the jersey online for around £32. And the Santiago-based outfit have shown their support for Celtic’s North Curve fan group by naming the special shirt after the Green Brigade.

Originally founded by members of the city’s Palestinian community, the two-time top-flight champions paraded their kit on social media last night by posting: « Love for Palestine crosses borders. From Chile to Scotland, and from Scotland to Ramallah, Beit Jala, or Gaza. Palestino and the Green Brigade. »

News quickly spread to Scotland as hundreds of Celtic fans shared the post on X, formerly known as Twitter. And today, the Green Brigade responded by expressing their gratitude for the flattering gesture.

The North Curve Celtic collective wrote: « Thank you to CD Palestino for this humbling tribute to the Celtic support and our special affinity with Palestine. We wish them luck for the new season in the Chilean Primera Division and Copa Libertadores, as they represent the Palestinian people and cause in South America. »

The special tribute comes after the Green Brigade made worldwide headlines for their show of solidarity with Palestinians amid the ongoing barrage of Gaza. The group turned Celtic Park into a sea of Palestine flags for October’s Champions League clash with Atletico Madrid and continue to fly flags at every home and away game – gaining support from across the globe.

More than 20,000 Palestinian civilians have been killed in Gaza since Israel began bombing the territory in the wake of Hamas’s October 7 attacks.
