It looked like he had earned an unlikely reprieve when Scott Bain went out with a dislocated thumb but before Gordon’s gloves could heat up again, Fraser Forster was back through the door.
The return of the English goalkeeper means Gordon’s place is no longer guaranteed and when Bain’s fit he could fall down to third choice.
Lennon opted to play Forster straight away last week against Hearts but had no choice but to put Craig in for the AIK game.
Now comes the trip to Ibrox, the fixture where Gordon lost his place last term. But if what we’re hearing is accurate the player will be on the bench – right now however – Gordon is hopeful and says he will know where he stands with the manager on Sunday.
“We’ll find out at the weekend.” Gordon told Sunsport “The way the games have gone, whatever the answer is come Sunday we’ll all know where we stand.
“It’s just up to me to train and play as well as I can when I get the chance in the team. But we’ll see what happens at the weekend and go from there.
“It’s a difficult situation to have four guys who have all played international football all vying for one position.
“Bainy will be back soon, I think he’s only a few weeks away.”
Celtic head to Ibrox portrayed as underdogs by the press. The treble treble champions have rarely got credit they deserve. Whoever is in goals on Sunday will need to make sure they’re at their best.
