Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has confirmed that Scott Bain has the number one short at the Parkhead side for now. The keeper was brought in for the Scottish Cup tie against Airdrie for Celtic's opening game of the year and has kept Craig Gordon out ever since. And Rodgers has welcomed the challenge for the first choice jersey between the keepers, while acknowledging that Bain is in possession in it for now.

“Scott is playing at the moment, he has had a sustained run and all my goalkeepers are fighting to play," said the Celtic manager.

“Scott’s decision making is very good. When we brought him in here, it is because he had a really good view of game. I’ve always had goalkeepers like that because how they build a game is really important to how my teams play.

“He sees it. He had one misplaced pass when he should have taken a touch – his very first touch of the game – and he understands football, when to speed up the game when to go in the first and second line.

“Craig is a fanatic goalkeeper. He makes great saves and he understands all of this from my time here. We have two goalkeeper vying for the position. Scott is looking calm and composed, and when he has to make saves he does, which is important."
