"Magners is a premium brand with huge ambition both at home and abroad, available in over 40 markets worldwide including key cider growth territories like the US, Australia, Canada and Asia.

Peter Lawwell, Chief Executive of Celtic Football Club welcomed Magners' commitment:

"On behalf of everyone at Celtic, I am delighted to welcome Magners as the club's new shirt sponsor.  This partnership is magnificent news, not only for Celtic but also for Scottish football.  We are proud to be successfully leading Scottish football at home and in Europe. The desire of a brand with Magners' stature to support the club is a measure of how much positivity there is around Celtic in our 125 th year.  I look forward to a long and successful partnership with Magners and I'm sure every Celtic supporter will welcome their support."
