Liverpool have released their new away kit for 2016-17.

The new kit is all black, with silver and red trim and it is inspired by the 1977 European Cup final.

According to a statement on Liverpool's official website: 

'With a fitting tribute to the team that won the European Cup on that memorable night in Rome on the May 25, 1977, the jersey has been designed in black, red and silver – reminiscent of the colours of the matchday programme thousands of fans still cherish to this day.

'Black was chosen as the base colour to create an imposing canvas for the flame red warning vents down either side of the torso. Silver trim has been detailed on the front, including the iconic Liver Bird crest, to commemorate the club’s first of five European Cup victories.'

Bill Shankly's famous quote ‘Liverpool was made for me and I was made for Liverpool’ is written on one of the internal hems while the emblem to commemorate the victims of the Hillsborough disaster is on the back of the shirt.
