Aberdeen have unveiled a new kit inspired by their European Cup Winners' Cup glory in 1983.

The red strip with white pin stripes is the same style as when the Dons ran out 2-1 winners against Real Madrid in Gothenburg.

The club have declared 11 May as #HappyGothenburgDay.

Close to 15,000 Aberdeen fans made the trip to Gothenburg's Ullevi Stadium for the final - the last time a Scottish side lifted a European football trophy.
