A number of Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to hail Scott Bain’s display for the Bhoys in the Europa League last night.
The 28-year-old goalkeeper was making just his third competitive appearance of the season, with Neil Lennon having gone for Vasilis Barkas in between the sticks.
However, the Celtic summer signing picked up a back injury which ruled him out of the 3-3 draw with Aberdeen last week.
Although Barkas returned to the fold for the trip to Lille, Lennon opted to keep Bain in the starting XI.
The Scot has come in for criticism from sections of the fanbase in the past, but his display against the French outfit drew plenty of praise.
As well as keeping out Jonathan David’s penalty, Bain made a series of great saves, and wasn’t really at fault for any of Lille’s goals.
Here is what some Celtic fans were saying about the £7,600-a-week stopper’s display:
Brilliant 1st half but we sat way too Deep in the 2nd. On a Positive Scott Bain was absolutely UNREAL. His Best Ever display in a Celtic Shirt 🍀 pic.twitter.com/2bHWFkNoNV

I hope so – he’s far better than Barkas. ✅🍀

Much better. Elyounoussi’s best game in a Celtic jersey. Laxalt, outstanding. Determined performance from Christie, McGregor and Brown. Still have doubts over the effectiveness of Ntcham in the ‘10’ role. Ajer could be a massive loss. Bain, also impressive! #HWG10IAR

Celtic surged into a two-goal lead in the first half of the game at the Stade Pierre-Mauroy, Mohamed Elyounoussi grabbing a brace.
However, Zeki Celik and Nanitamo Ikone scored in the second half for a share of the spoils, a result which sees places the Hoops third in Group H.
