Hearts are eyeing move for Celtic veteran Craig Gordon

Despite their brilliant 2-1 win over the Rangers on Sunday, the reality of the situation is that they are still very likely to go down at the end of the season. They are currently at the bottom of the Premiership table with just 17 points from the first 23 games. Thus, the club will be looking to bolster their ranks in January if they are to have any hope of staying up and according to reports in the Football Insider, one player they are looking at is Celtic veteran keeper, Craig Gordon.

Gordon came through the Hearts academy and made his first mark on Scottish football playing for them. He even won the Scottish Cup with the club back in 2006, a rare feat for the Edinburgh club in recent times. Since then the keeper has moved on to bigger things though, winning 13 trophies during his time at Celtic.

After losing his place in the starting XI at Parkhead, it is not hard to see why a return to his boyhood club would be an attractive proposition for the 37-year-old goalkeeper. But with Conor Hazard having left on loan, and the transfer window coming to a close soon, it will be interesting to see whether the Hoops are open to letting Gordon leave at this late stage.
