The Gypsies made headlines around the world last month when they unveiled an away kit for 2019 which included an image of Marley, in tribute to his 1980 concert at the club's Dalymount Park home.

Bohemians have been forced to withdraw from sale a special away jersey for next season after the estate of the late Bob Marley lodged a complaint.

The Gypsies made headlines around the world last month when they unveiled an away kit for 2019 which included an image of Marley, in tribute to his 1980 concert at the club's Dalymount Park home.

At the time, Bohs insisted that they had been cleared to use the image as they had bought it from a photographic agency but the club have since been contacted by the Marley estate and the jersey is no longer on sale; refunds being offered to those who had made pre-orders.

"We can no longer supply the jersey with the image of Bob Marley as advertised," the club stated.

A redesigned jersey, with a clenched fist in place of the Marley graphic, will instead be sold, 10pc of the proceeds going to a scheme which aids those in Direct Provision.

Meanwhile, the Gypsies' plans for the new season have suffered a blow as defender Dan Casey is strongly linked with a move to St Patrick's Athletic.

Bohs have already lost JJ Lunney, to Waterford, while winger Daniel Kelly is expected to move to England.
