Report claims Celtic star Scott Bain could be out for two months

Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain could be out of action for two months after picking up a hand problem.

The Scottish Sun claim Bain suffered the injury at some during the devastating Champions League qualifying defeat to Cluj, even though he played the full 90 minutes.

It will see Neil Lennon turn to Craig Gordon to deputise, and The Sun say the manager now wants to add cover for Bain while the transfer market is still open.

Lennon does have youngster Conor Hazard, but he wants more experienced cover.


It’s a major blow for Bain, who will have wanted to make amends for his performance on Tuesday.

Neil Lennon will be undertaking press conference duties on Friday, and will surely provide more information about Bain’s condition.

TBR’s view

If Bain really is out for as many as two months, then that’s a frustration for Celtic.

Gordon coming back into the side will actually sit well with a lot of Hoops supporters, but there is obviously a worry about the lack of cover.

Perhaps Celtic could now move for former star Fraser Forster, which has been suggested by the club’s former striker Charlie Nicholas.

The 31-year-old is understood to be available after dropping down the pecking order at St. Mary’s.
