Celtic fans react to Craig Gordon performance v Dundee
Celtic fans on social media have praised goalkeeper Craig Gordon for his performance in the Hoops match against Dundee, which the Bhoys drew 0-0.
Gordon, who was making his first appearance since suffering a knee injury in January, was far busier than many people would have expected and pulled off a superb early save from Simon Murray early in the first-half.
The Scotland international also did well to bail out the Hoops centre-backs Jack Hendry and Dedryck Boyata who failed to deal with Dundee’s long-ball tactics.
Here are some of the best reactions to the 35-year-old’s performance for the Hoops:
SAVE BY GORDON…. ???? Corner Dundee…slow start here by Celtic

HT – Celtic started brightly but have moved the ball far to slowly since around the 15th minute, Dundee growing into the game, Glen Kamara having a good night so far, Murray is causing Hendry a few problems, Craig Gordon has been very sprightly coming off his line a few times.

Gordon, who was making his 200th appearance for the Hoops, has given Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers an interesting dilemma for the rest of the season.
He will have to decide if to keep Gordon between the sticks for the foreseeable future, or bring Scott Bain back into the fold.

Bain, who has excelled at the Hoops since joining in January from Dundee, was ineligible to play for the Bhoys against his parent club, which lead to Gordon’s unexpected return.
With a massive Scottish Cup semi-final against Rangers less than a fortnight away, Rodgers will have to get the decision about his permanent goalkeeper right, and Gordon has done his chances no harm after a fine performance against Dundee.
