SCOTT BAIN has been a man on a mission this season, his first Celtic break coming in the League Cup where Brendan Rodgers opted to play the goalkeeper in the competition ahead of Craig Gordon who kept his league and Euro duties.
However, since the turn of the year, Scott has solidified himself as Celtic’s number one in what would be one of Brendan Rodgers last big decisions at the club.
When Neil Lennon came in at the end of February, the goalkeeper may have been worried about his spot but the former Dundee stopper has kept his place and excelled under the interim boss.
As the Scottish Cup semi-final approaches, Scott Bain has reflected on his season so far and believes it would be incredible to play in two finals in the one season, especially when he started the season as a backup.
“I’d love to play in two cup finals in one season. I had a dream start in the last league cup campaign. I can take more enjoyment this year because I’ve played a bigger part of it.” Bain told CelticTV.
“We’ve had a lot of success over the past few years and teams want to stop us. We need to make sure we’re on our game to keep going.
“I don’t think the manager needs to say much to get us motivated for Sunday. Players like Scott Brown always push us to a standard to achieve these goals as well.”
Celtic take on Aberdeen for the second time this season at Hampden. The League Cup final saw Celtic run out 1-0 winners against the Dons back in December under the former Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers.
Neil Lennon is now tasked with trying to bring home the rebel treble and it’s not going to be easy.
