Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain has spoken of his pride at playing for the Hoops in their 3-2 win over Rangers which all but clinches their seventh title in a row.
The on-loan Dundee number one made his debut replacing Dorus de Vries who suffered an ankle injury in training and the 26-year-old overcame a couple of dodgy moments in the first-half to turn in a fine display in the second-half.
His saves from Jason Cummings and Alfredo Morelos were vital in securing the three points, and after the match he took to his personal Twitter account to give his verdict on the victory.
“Unbelievable!! Enjoyed every minute of it! Bhoys were terrific. Never seen fan support like it. So this is how it feels…” Bain said.

Bain looks set to retain his place in the Hoops side for next Sunday’s league clash against Motherwell, as the Hoops aim to wrap the title as soon as possible.
Football Insider verdict
Bain should be justifiably proud of his display in the Hoops’ victory. Called into action at only 24 hours notice, his second-half performance was excellent as his vital saves ensured that the Bhoys were able to pull off one of their most memorable victories at Ibrox in a long time. Bain’s performance was so exceptional that there is no doubt that he should be the Hoops number one until the end of the season. He seems more capable than de Vries, and it wouldn’t be that much of a surprise if Brendan Rodgers was thinking about making his loan-deal permanent at the end of the season.
