Celtic

1985-86

Primary strip, with a wrapover crew neck replacing the v-neck of the previous shirt.
European variant with number on back but not on shorts - note the placing of the Umbro logo on the right leg, underneath the crest.
While it's not a Paisley shirt per se, it will forever be associated with the town of Paisley - Celtic's win away to St Mirren on the final day gave them the title.
The League Cup game against Hibernian in September - a penalty shootout loss after a 4-4 draw - was this kit's only outing this season.
Three days after the League Cup game at Easter Road, Celtic were there again in the league and won 5-0. This time, they inexplicably wore the European versions of the previous 1982-85 home shirts - possibly the first time numbers were seen on their backs in a domestic game - while green change socks were used as Hibs had white sets.

1994-95

With the Scottish League introducing a rule that teams must have numbers on their shirts, Celtic had them on their sleeves for their opening two league games.
While black numbers in the Umbro style of the time were used on the shorts for the opening game against Falkirk, the traditional rounded green numbers were back for the match against Dundee United - for the final time.
The league became more specific and insisted that the numbers had to be on the back - the 2-0 win at Rangers on August 27 saw them become a permanent fixture.

An unusual third kit in that it featured the home colours heavily - not uncommon for Celtic, though - but also that it was never worn in a competitive away game, all its outings at 'home' at Hampden Park.

1998-99

Squad numbers and player names on backs were introduced in the Scottish top flight.
For the Champions League first qualifying round tie against St Patrick's Athletic, the white numbers were 'filled in', while plain white socks were used.
Celtic beat St Pat's but would exit the competition with defeat to Croatia Zagreb in the second qualifying round. The normal socks were back while the black numbers were lacking the green stroke - player names remained absent.

2012-13

A special crest was used to mark Celtic's 125th anniversary, with the Tennent's logo reduced in size beneath it. For the first time since 1932, the first-choice socks were black.
Initially, the traditional white socks were the alternative set but they were promoted to primary duty in December.
European variant with different number font and a white panel for legibility.
Default change kit.
Champions League version, with no shorts sponsorship and different number/letter set.
Based on the club's first-ever home kit in 1888, this shirt had a unique crest with white-out sponsorship. It was worn at home to Hearts in October to mark the anniversary and later used as as a third option.
