Rodgers has selection issue over this position in Celtic final


The biggest selection issue that Brendan Rodgers seems to have for Celtic’s upcoming Scottish Cup Final against Motherwell is who to play in goals.

The Hoops boss has the rare privilege of being able to call upon two players who are more than capable of being the permanent number one, Craig Gordon and Scott Bain.

But when it comes down to it, providing that he is fit Rodgers is likely to select the more experienced Gordon over the slightly more youthful Bain.

This is not a slight on Bain, who has impressed hugely since joining the Hoops on loan from Dundee in January, in fact so impressive has Bain’s performance been that he recently signed a permanent contract with the Hoops.

Gordon has been Rodgers’ number one goalkeeper for almost all of his time in charge of the Hoops, and Rodgers seems to trust him more than Bain.

It is very important that the Hoops get this decision correct, as goalkeeper is one of the most important parts of the team, and even though they might not have a lot to do, such as in the league cup final against Motherwell when Gordon had to make one superb save from former Steelmen striker Louis Moult.

If the Hoops want to make history, then getting the team selection correct will be vital in making sure that the Hoops win the Scottish Cup and complete the domestic treble once more.
