Celtic’s Champions League dreams are over after losing in the qualifying round. Scott Bain conceded four goals as Celtic were beaten 4-3 by CFR Cluj on the night and 5-4 on aggregate.
The game ebbed and flowed but the Romanian side shocked Celtic in Glasgow. Despite goals from James Forrest, Odsonne Edouard and Ryan Christie, Cluj will progress to the next round.
Bain has received criticism after conceding four goals last night. The 27-year-old’s form has dipped significantly this season but Neil Lennon continues to give him games ahead of Craig Gordon.
Celtic fans on Scott Bain
Celtic fans flocked to Twitter after the game with widespread criticism for a number of players, as well as Lennon. Bain was among the players discussed after shipping four goals at Celtic Park.
There was plenty of discussion about what to do in this department. Some called for Gordon to come back for the next game while others want to see a new goalkeeper signed. Here are some of the best tweets about Bain’s display against Cluj.
Go and buy a decent one. Big Forster is available

Gordon back in asap

Bain looked nervous, back to Gordon for me short term whilst scouting a 1st choice keeper, who we would probably keep on the bench, or play at left back!

Scott Bain is utter rubbish

Always preferred Gordon

ScottBain has now had his time I believe. Craig Gordon is a world class shot stopper, and with our style of play going to be less and less dependent on intricate football in the back 4, compiled with Bain’s comedy of errors of late, it’s time for Gordon to come back into the fold
