Hearts revealed the new 16/17 away football kit by Puma. In a radical departure from the traditional maroon of the home strip, Hearts have called on the rich history of the club to produce a homage to the 5th Earl of Rosebery.

A keen racehorse owner and patron of football, the Earl became Prime Minister in 1894 and was also President of the Scottish Football Association and Honorary President of Hearts.

His racing colours of primrose yellow and pink were worn by the Scottish national team on nine occasions between 1881 and 1951, most notably in 1900 when Scotland defeated England 4-1.

The new jersey, shorts and socks sport the Rosebery primrose yellow and pink colours.  The jersey, which features pink horizontal stripes across the front with a solid yellow back and shorts which feature an original style felt badge as well as an embroidered tag commemorating the Rosebery Challenge Cup.
