Celtic fans have lost their minds on Twitter after Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain revealed that he wants to sign a permanent deal at Parkhead.

The 26-year-old has confirmed that he wants to wrap up a free transfer to the Bhoys as soon as possible after enjoying his first two appearances for them since moving to Glasgow on loan in January.

“I’d love to stay here and if I continue to play well then it stands me in good stead. Rather to get it done sooner than later but it’s not a priority right now, it’s just a priority to play well and do well for this club,” he said, as quoted by Celtic’s official Twitter account on Thursday.

Bain made an impressive save to deny Alfredo Morelos in a 3-2 win over Rangers at Ibrox while also keeping a clean sheet against Motherwell in his last outing.

While Craig Gordon recovers from injury, Bain is now pretty much expected to remain in Brendan Rodgers’ starting line-up with Dorus de Vries dropping down the pecking order due to his poor form.

Celtic fans are delighted with the news that Bain is willing to sign a deal at Parkhead with him approaching the end of his contract at Dundee.

One supporter claimed that the Hoops must “sign him up” after his transfer revelation.

Here is a selection of their tweets:

Bain has made 20 appearances in all competitions this season for both Dundee and Celtic.

The former Aberdeen and Alloa shot-stopper was briefly sent on loan to Hibernian but before he could make an appearance for the Edinburgh club he was part of a triple loan swap which saw him move to Parkhead, Scott Allan to Hibs and Simon Murray to Dundee.

In other Celtic news, a Sky Sports pundit claims that agents will tell this Hoops midfield duo they could triple their money with a move to England.
