If you’re a superstitious person or even followed football since the 90s, you will know there is a certain amount of stock in omens in our game.
When fans are bereft of ideas as to what’s happening with their team, they can look at things they might not usually do.
However, if you’re a Celtic fan and you’ve had the misfortune of watching Celtic in their luminous third kit this season, even if you aren’t superstitious, it’s likely to give you ‘the fear’ a little bit.
Celtic were shocking at Easter Road as they dropped all three points in Edinburgh and Celtic fans are quickly putting the luminous yellow kit and failure together.
Everytime Celtic wear it, they seem to either struggle for a result or just lose.
Of course, a kit should have no bearing on how a team plays but tell that to Manchester United back in the 90s when they famously stopped wearing the grey kit they played in because they believed it to be bad luck.
If the fans link this kit to failure, maybe the players do…
Celtic wearing the DX kit gives me the fear.
