Scotland go pretty in pink for new away strip

The Scottish Football Association launched the Scotland national team's new away strip in conjunction with adidas on Wednesday.

The Scots will don a brand new kit dominated by white but with strips of pinkish red and yellow for all of their away matches in 2014.

Below are some images of the new Scotland away strip as posted on Twitter by the SFA.

A description on the SFA's official website suggested that the new kit was designed to pay homage to Lord Rosebery hence the 'rosebery hashtag'.

"First worn in the 1880s and continued throughout the next two decades, Scotland played in the primrose hoops which were synonymous as the racing colours of racehorse owner Archibald Philip Primrose, Lord Rosebery, who was an early patron of Scottish football," read the statement.

Scotland's first outing in the flashy new kit will be in a friendly against Poland in Warsaw on March 5.
