Fans furious at Celtic kit clash which made St Mirren game ‘impossible to watch’

Sky Sports viewers were left fuming at a kit clash between Celtic and St Mirren in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday morning which left some unable to tell the two sides apart.

Although Ange Postecoglou side's 364-day unbeaten run in the division came to an end thanks to a 2-0 victory for the hosts – much of the social media chatter was in relation to the similarity of the two kits.

With St Mirren wearing their home strip of black and white stripes, Celtic for some reason wore their all grey third kit – with both sets of players donning black shorts.

One fan wrote: "The ref would have known days in advance of each teams intention regards to strips & particularly given it’s a TV game should never have allowed this clash."

With a second adding: "The kit clash in the Celtic match is ridiculous."

A third continued: "Is it my bleary-eyed hangover, or are the kits in Celtic v St Mirren clashing horribly on screen?"

Should the kits have been changed? Give us your thoughts in the comments section below.

With a fourth fuming: "Who cleared #Celtic to wear the third kit today? Straining my eyes to tell the teams apart!"

A fifth writing: "Maybe the most ridiculous kit colour clash ever in St Mirren vs Celtic. Black and white vs black and grey."

And a sixth agreeing: "How on earth have Celtic been allowed to wear this away kit?? Surely it is an obvious kit clash???"

On the pitch, Postecoglou's side were unable to restore a five-point lead at the top of the table with headers from Mark O'Hara and Jonah Ayunga either side of the break going unanswered.

The manager said: "First thing, credit to St Mirren, they worked really hard and were committed to their game plan and made it difficult for us. The performance today wasn't up to our levels and nowhere near where it needs to be.

"From our perspective, we didn't perform in any of the areas we like to perform in and have been performing in.

"There isn't anything hugely positive we can take from today, including team selection, probably wasn't right. There are always reminders we still have work to do. Every team is a potential hurdle."
