Is Rodgers right to drop Gordon for Bain this weekend?

Scott Bain will get the nod ahead of Craig Gordon this weekend. Has Brendan Rodgers made the right call in goal?

Celtic face Aberdeen in the final of the Betfred Cup at Hampden Park this weekend.

And it is the first chance for the Bhoys to pick up some silverware this season as they target a third consecutive domestic treble.

Ahead of the game, Brendan Rodgers has already made his selection call on who will play in goal.

According to The Scottish Sun, Scott Bain will get the nod ahead of Craig Gordon between the sticks.

But is this the right call from Rodgers or is he jeopardising Celtic’s chances of winning the cup?

 

Rodgers clearly has a lot of faith in Bain, who has been his Betfred Cup goalkeeper for the entirety of the competition so far.

The 27-year-old joined Celtic this summer after spending half a season on loan last term but he has mainly been a deputy.

Bain has only played one league match for Celtic this season, keeping a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw at Livingston.

But his Betfred Cup efforts have been commendable as he has only conceded one goal in three games.

Bain has plenty of experience in Scotland and this cup final is a great opportunity for him on a personal level.

Firstly, he will be eager to impress and show Celtic fans that he is Gordon’s long-term successor when the 35-year-old retires.

And the once-capped Scotland international can also prove Aberdeen wrong, seven years after he was released by them.
