MJM Sports is producing special commemorative match shirts for Clyde FC as they take on heavyweights Celtic on Sunday, February 9.

The tie is a big one for Clyde, who play their football two divisions below Celtic in Scottish League One.

The last time the two sides met was in 2006 when Clyde produced a giant-killing performance to win 2-1.

MJM Sports provide the Scottish side, nicknamed The Bully Wee, with all their Kappa teamwear, which they embroider with the club logo and print player names, numbers and team sponsors. They will be adding special commemorative details for the big cup tie.

Managing director Terry Schofield said: "It's a real pleasure to be the teamwear provider to Clyde FC, particularly for this major match.
