Report: Celtic player begging to leave club this month, Hearts an option

The Scottish Sun have claimed that Craig Gordon is begging Celtic to let him leave the club before Friday’s 11pm deadline with Scottish Premiership side Hearts an option – and Neil Lennon is ready to grant him such a move.

Gordon, 37, has firmly become second choice under Lennon this season. That is because the Scottish champions signed Fraser Forster on loan from Premier League side Southampton, and a permanent move at the end of the campaign could occur.


It means Gordon – who has just six months left on his £20,000-a-week contract (Scottish Sun) – has played just six times in all competitions this season, failing to make a single Scottish Premiership appearance.

With a summer exit inevitable, Gordon has urged Lennon to let him leave before Friday’s deadline. Hearts are said to be interested in re-signing the veteran goalkeeper, after he came through the ranks at Hearts and made 97 appearances.

TBR’s view – Only fair that Lennon lets Gordon leave before Friday

A servant to the club, Gordon has shone for Celtic – clocking up a whopping 242 appearances for the Scottish champions. He has helped Celtic win a total of 13 trophies, including the last five league titles of their excellent eight-in-a-row run.

Given that he is a legend of the club, Lennon should treat his request with respect and let him leave – given Celtic have Scott Bain in reserve and Forster as first choice. It makes sense for Gordon to return to Tynecastle.
