Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain has delivered his verdict on a ‘great week’ for the Hoops after he made an unexpected start against Hearts.
The January arrival from Dundee replaced Craig Gordon, who was out with a knee injury, and helped the Hoops to a 3-1 win over Hearts, a week after the Bhoys clinched the league title against Rangers.
Bain was delighted with his days work, as he revealed on his personal Twitter account.
“Great end to a Great week! Fantastic Support as always,” he said.

Bain has been excellent for the Hoops since joining on loan, and hasn’t let the club down once after making his debut in the 3-2 win over Rangers in March.
Football Insider verdict
Bain’s start was certainly unexpected, as there had been no word that Gordon’s knee injury had returned, and it will be interesting to see who is in goals for the Hoops for the two remaining league games this season, against Kilmarnock and Aberdeen. Of course, if Bain needs to play in those games he is a more than able replacement for Gordon, and he has probably been the most successful of the signings made in January by Brendan Rodgers, as he has performed very well for the Bhoys in each of his performances so far. There’s no doubt that if need be Rodgers would start Bain without any hesitation in the Scottish Cup Final against Motherwell in a fortnight’s time, if the Hoops number one goalkeeper is still having issues with his knee. Hopefully Bain will earn a permanent transfer to the Hoops in the summer, as he has certainly earned it.
