Done deal – Celtic complete capture of top-flight 26-year-old as terms agreed
Celtic have announced that goalkeeper Scott Bain will remain at Celtic after his loan period expires.
Bain is out of contract with parent club Dundee in May and will now complete his switch to Glasgow, after impressing Brendan Rodgers in the six games he’s played since he joined.
The news of his four-year-deal was announced on the official Celtic Twitter page on Thursday evening.

Football Insider verdict:
Great news for Bain, who would have been looking for a new club if Celtic hadn’t come in with the offer of a four-year-deal. That’s transformational for the goalkeeper, who had fallen out with Dundee manager Neil McCann, and was wondering where his career was going. After his performance in his first game for Celtic – the 3-2 win against bitter rivals Rangers, where he stopped Alfredo Morelos scoring what looked like a certain goal – he must have been hopeful that he’d be picked up and now it’s been confirmed. Celtic fans will be looking for much bigger and better transfers over the summer, but quality in depth in the goalkeeper position makes this a great deal, especially as he comes as a free agent. Where he will fit in now though is open for debate – in Craig Gordon’s absence he’s moved above Dorus de Vries in the pecking order, and the 37-year-old Dutch keeper might have to be prepared to see out the last year of his career on the bench.
