Scott Bain has been excellent for Celtic since replacing Dorus de Vries in goal for the Hoops.

The 26-year-old followed up his excellent performance in the Old Firm derby with another solid display in the match against Motherwell, where he made two excellent saves from Curtis Main..

Since arriving at the Hoops on loan from Dundee in January, he has had to bide his time for a first-team appearance but he has grabbed the opportunity with both hands since replacing de Vries after the Dutchman suffered an ankle injury.

Hoops boss Brendan Rodgers should be looking to get the player tied down on a permanent deal, as he has proved himself to be a more than adequate replacement for the injured Craig Gordon.

The Hoops may have to be quick to get the deal done though, as Hibernian boss Neil Lennon has indicated, as reported by the Scotsman, that he is interesting in taking Bain to the Easter Road side for the second time.

However, the Hoops boss seems to be on the case and has indicated, as reported by the Daily Record, that he is interested in making the deal a permanent one.

If Bain does decide to stay with the Hoops, he and Gordon will be the best selection of goalkeepers the Hoops have had at the club in a long time.

If fans were thinking that Bain’s good performance at Ibrox was a one off, then his display at Fir Park proved that he is a player worth keeping at the club.
