At a press launch in Glasgow, Celtic skipper Scott Brown paraded the strip which is a modern interpretation of one of the nation's most iconic jerseys used over 130 years ago.

First worn in the 1880s and continued with through until the end of the 19th century, Scotland played in the primrose hoops which were a replica of the racing colours of racehorse owner Archibald Philip Primrose, Lord Rosebery, who was an early patron of Scottish football.

The unique colour combination was resurrected as an away strip after World War II and will now be used by Gordon Strachan's side on the road to France 2016.

"It will certainly make us stand out from the crowd and that's exactly what we will need to do to qualify for Euro 2016," said Brown

"There is a lot of optimism ahead of this campaign and the new away kit will help us make a bright start to qualifying.

"We are an up-and-coming team and we've played really well in the last six or seven games so if we can keep that spirit going we have a great chance.

"Darren Fletcher's return to the set-up is huge for us. He plays for one of the biggest clubs in the world and despite the fact he will be vying with me for the armband, the main thing is he is back with and we're really looking forward to the qualifiers."

Scotland, who have been drawn in a group with Germany, Poland, the Republic of Ireland, Georgia and Gibraltar, begin their campaign away to group favourites Germany on Sunday, September 6.

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
