“He has the temperament and quality to play as a goalkeeper for Celtic,” Brendan gives Bain massive thumbs up

a safe pair of hands

Now Brendan has said that Scott Bain’s stay at Celtic could well be extended past the summer after impressing on his debut at Ibrox.

The 26-year-old was drafted in after Craig Gordon’s injury to deputise to Dorus De Vries; however, injury to the 37-year-old ‘keeper paved the way for Bain to start against Rangers.

Now, with the Dutchman returning, Celtic have a goalkeeper selection dilemma of which Rodgers is delighted about.

“I thought Scott Bain was absolutely outstanding last week,” Brendan grinned.

“If you can play in that game as a Celtic player away at Ibrox, with that atmosphere, then you know you can play in any game of football for Celtic.

“It’s great, Scott came in as backup but we always felt he could play for us.

“Sometimes you need someone else’s misfortune to lead to good fortune for you and that’s how it worked out for Scott.

“His performance and temperament in that game showed me everything to show that he can play for Celtic.”

Meanwhile, Rodgers confirmed that there would be discussions held regarding Bain’s future amid talk of interest from Hearts, Hibs, Bristol City and Birmingham.

“It’s pretty clear he has the temperament and quality to play as a goalkeeper for Celtic.

“We’ll look at that between now and the end of the season.”

Supporters of any of the above listed clubs would do well not to get their hopes up.

Last Saturday, before making his debut, The Celtic Star wrote this about Scott Bain – it is well worth a read if you missed it.
