Jens Lehmann has warned Celtic and others that they are VIOLATING Arsenal's trademark brand.

Brendan Rodgers' all-conquering side made history in 2016/17 by completing an unbeaten domestic clean sweep. Dubbed the 'Invincible Treble', it remains one of the most iconic seasons in the Parkhead club's illustrious history.

But in a legal twist, the Hoops may no longer be able to use the 'Invincibles' tagline after legend Jens Lehmann secured the branding rights. The Gunners famously stormed to an unbeaten Premier League title triumph in 2004 in what is regarded as one of the greatest achievements in English football - earning the name 'Invincibles'.

However, ahead of the team's 20th anniversary, goalkeeper Lehmann has shelled out £30,000 to secure the branding rights to the 'Invincibles', meaning he can legally stop other brands from using the slogan.

He told the Daily Mail: "I had the idea because the name 'Invincibles' becomes more and more popular approaching the 20th anniversary. Nobody had it, so I was looking into it. I was ready to get the branding rights for our group, so everybody who’s using it is violating our brand. Sometimes you have guys from across Europe, Africa or Asia who are using it.

"They could have done that without permission and named themselves 'the Invincibles whatever'. They can’t do it anymore."

Lehmann's revelation means Falkirk better be careful after going through the entire League One campaign unbeaten to secure Championship promotion. Steven Gerrard also led Rangers to top-flight silverware without losing in 2020/21 to shatter Celtic's ten-in-a-row dreams.
