Celtic goalkeeper Dorus de Vries hasn’t had the best of times since joining the Hoops last season.

The 37-year-old Dutchman lost his place as first choice goalkeeper to Craig Gordon after only a few games after a dreadful performance in a 7-0 loss to Barcelona last season.

This season he hasn’t fared much better, replacing the injured Gordon but flopping in the Hoops’ 3-0 loss to Zenit in the Europa League.

To make matters worse, he got injured last month before the Old Firm derby and had to watch his replacement Scott Bain – on-loan from Dundee – turn in a superb performance in a 3-2 win for the Hoops.

However, de Vries may have been handed one last unexpected reprieve in a Hoops goalkeeping jersey.

A respected Celtic fansite – Celtsarehere.com – is reporting that Dundee – who the Bhoys face on Wednesday night – are refusing to let Bain play in the match.

If this is the case, de Vries will have another chance to show that he is worthy of being the Hoops number one goalkeeper.

Most supporters have probably lost faith in de Vries already, but Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers hasn’t, as he handed the Dutchman a one year contract extension earlier this season.

He will have no qualms at all about playing the Dutchman in what may turn out to be his last Hoops appearance of the season.
