Gordon: This is how long I can continue at Celtic
By Emma Sanders
Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon claims he has no limits on how long he can play for and insists he is at his fittest under Brendan Rodgers.
The 33-year-old has become the number one at Celtic Park and after a battle to gain the top jersey and has no intentions of giving it up any time soon.
Despite his age, Gordon hopes he can play on for many years and he admitted he is in “great condition” following the victory against Hamilton.
“I’m in a great place and my body is in great condition. I turn 34 on Saturday and I feel as good as I’ve ever done. Who knows how long I can go on for?” said Gordon, as quoted by the Daily Record.
“I don’t want to put a limit on it. I’ll go as long as I can.”
Gordon was dropped at the start of the season for summer signing Dorus de Vries but he won back his place for the 4-2 victory against St Johnstone and has retained his position ever since.

Celtic take on Ross County in Wednesday evening’s Scottish Premiership clash and the Hoops are hoping to extend their run to 24 games unbeaten in the domestic season.
They currently top the league table by 14 points but could extend their lead over rivals Rangers to 17 points with a victory against the sixth-placed side.
Gordon is expected to make his 31st appearance of the season in goal which is an impressive feat. He’s already kept 13 clean sheets this season too and could make his third successive one if he doesn’t concede against Ross County.
