Captain Scott Brown helped unveil the new strips alongside Under-21 defender Callum Paterson and Rachel Corsie and Leanne Crichton from the Women's side at the new JD Sports Superstore on Argyle Street in Glasgow.

Commenting on the away kit former Scotland forward Kevin Gallacher told BBC's Radio 5 Live said: "This is the ultimate pink that you class for girls. It is a girl's colour.

"I don't think you can complain because there's a lot of teams who have worn pink now. And I'm never going to complain because I scored my first two international goals in salmon pink."

Scotland begin the new campaign in September 2016 away to Malta.
