Neil Lennon blown away by Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain

Celtic’s interim boss Neil Lennon raved about goalkeeper Scott Bain following his performance against Aberdeen.

The Bhoys recorded a 3-0 victory away to Aberdeen, which clinched them an eighth consecutive top-flight title.

Mikael Lustig made the breakthrough just before-half-time, while Jozo Simunovic and Odsonne Edouard got on the scoresheet in the second-half.

The Scottish giants still have a cup final against Hearts ahead of them and they are on course for another domestic treble.

 

Lennon had some kind words for his goalkeeper Bain after he kept yet another clean sheet against Aberdeen.

The 27-year-old has been phenomenal since he came into the side in the second half of the season and has cemented his spot as number one.

“Scott Bain for a start has been unbelievable since I came in. He made another world-class save today, his handling, distribution, everything about his game is top-class,” Lennon told Sky Sports.

TBR’s View:

There have been so many brilliant performers throughout the season for Celtic and the incredible rise of Bain in goal has to be one of the best success stories.

The Scotland international has now taken over as the number one option in goal and has a remarkable 22 clean sheets in 28 games across all competitions this season.

He’s proven that he is a top shot-stopper and also his quality in playing out from the back is a real bonus.

There were concerns earlier in the season about how Celtic would find their next goalkeeper, but they have hit the jackpot with Bain by the looks of it.
