Former Celtic invincible goalkeeper, Craig Gordon has told Celtic fans to give Vasilis Barkas time to settle.
The goalkeeper has come in fir a hard time since he came to the club without doing much wrong.
Being compared to Fraser Forster and given what’s at stake this season, it was going to be hard for anyone to come in and reach their full potential.
Craig Gordon reiterated that sentiment talking to SunSport, the Hearts goalkeeper believes we’ve yet to see the best of Barkas and knows exactly how he’ll be feeling:
He said: “It was always going to be difficult for anyone to go into the team in a season of this magnitude, let alone a keeper coming to a new country.
“He needs to settle in and get used to his new surroundings, team-mates and coaching methods. It’s tough.
“I’m sure he’ll come good with the attributes that he has and the places that he’s played. He’s got a number of international caps, so he’s got experience.”
Barkas was signed when Forster decided to knock back a fresh loan deal to stay at the club.
The goalkeeper has a top season last term but didn’t fancy coming for the monumental season.
Barkas hasn’t done much wrong; some appear to be hyper critical of him and using the Greek international as a scapegoat for Celtic’s problems.
Hopefully he will come up big in the next run of games and silence his critics.
