Former goalkeeper Cammy Bell has suggested that there is an underlying issue at play regarding Benjamin Siegrist at Celtic. Scott Bain started for Celtic in place of the suspended Joe Hart, who is club No.1 but on Friday’s Clyde Superscoreboard, the question was posed to the panel as to why Siegrist wasn’t in contention to start at Fir Park.
📞 “I don’t see the point in keeping a guy who’s never going to play”
🗣 “Is Bain a Celtic goalkeeper long-term? Absolutely not”
🧤 Ross thinks Ben Siegrist needs to start to give Celtic “a good look at him” on Saturday 🏟

Siegrist was signed from Dundee United in 2022 as he looked to challenge Hart for the number one jersey. However, after some outings in the Cup competitions, he then went AWOL for some time with then-boss Ange Postecoglou coy on the injury-front. It has been widely reported that Siegrist has a girlfriend in Australia and he could be looking to reunite with her in due course. You would expect that the Swiss stopper would move on either in January or next summer.
Scott Bain was solid in the game this afternoon, there were probably a few stops that you would expect him to make but he was assured nevertheless. It is unlikely that Bain will serve as a successor to Hart but it is clear that he is rated at the club with both Ange and Brendan entrusting him.
