Celtic have been handed a massive boost with the news that goalkeeper Craig Gordon will play again before the end of the season, according to a report.
The Scottish Sun claim that the player should return to first-team action by April, just in time for the end of the season, with the 35-year-old receiving the good news after visiting a knee specialist in London.
Gordon was originally ruled out of action for up to three months after suffering the injury in an accidental clash with Hibernian’s Efe Ambrose, and there were said to be fears that his season would in fact be over.
The Bhoys have attempted to deal with the injury by signing Dundee goalkeeper Scott Bain on loan until the end of the season.
Bain is currently number two to Dorus de Vries, who has taken over as number one goalkeeper whilst Gordon recovers from injury.
The Scottish international is still set to miss a host of big games between now and the end of the season however, beginning with the upcoming Scottish Cup tie against Partick Thistle on Saturday, a match which should see de Vries continue in goals.
The Dutchman should also be in goals for the Europa League last 32 clash against Zenit on Thursday, and the top of the table clash against Aberdeen in two weeks’ time.
