SCOTT BAIN will find out how much Brendan Rodgers rates him on Sunday when the team sheet is read out to the players ahead of their match against Hamilton.

The 26-year-old had a run of three games between the sticks and looked as if he was ready to close out the season as Celtic’s number one.

The match against Dundee, however, has thrown a spanner in the works for the goalkeeper.

With Bain ineligible on Wednesday evening, Craig Gordon, fresh off an injury came back into the side and earned his 100th clean sheet in 200 games for the club.

In doing so, he has played himself back into the team and will more than likely expect to be the goalkeeper that finishes the season. That is unless Brendan Rodgers sees a big Celtic future for Bain.

Sunday will tell us what we want to know. Is Brendan so high on Bain’s ability that he’s willing to sacrifice his number one to give the loan star a shot? The Celtic manager has been adamant he would like Bain to sign with Celtic on a full time basis come the summer but under what job description?

At the age of 26 Bain will want to be playing as much as he can and if he feels he’s being cast as a supporting player rather than the main act, it could sour any sort of deal on the table.

I think Bain knew it was a longshot to come in and dethrone Dorus de Vries never mind Craig Gordon but having got the opportunity and the taste for what could be, he’ll be chomping at the bit for more, and less likely to be happy for a place on the bench.

I’ll be sure to look out for the team sheet come Sunday and see what the manager is thinking. It’s certain that whoever starts the Hamilton match will be the goalkeeper who starts the semi final.

Who would you choose?


  1. I have always liked Gordon, but I think Bain will be our future. And what a good one he will be! So if he needs to play in order to make the move permanent, then let him play

  2. Gordon Has been incredible with the hoops since arriving at Paradise after others had written him off, Including Gordon himself due to his injuries, I am sure that Gordon would welcome Bain as Celtic’s New number (1) But firstly I would like to thank the Big Man for his services, The supporters have taken the Big Man to their hearts and shall be ever grateful for what he helped our club to achieve, I am sure that Gordon would wish Scott Bain all the best in being the new number (1) at Paradise, Would Like also to say a big Thank You To Craig Gordon & Wish him all the best for the future, I feel that another club shall require the Big man’s services in the not too distant future !!!
