Celtic 26-year-old has massive decision to make in summer after reported interest
Celtic’s unlikely Old Firm hero Scott Bain has a massive decision to make in the summer.
The on-loan from Dundee goalkeeper made his Hoops debut against Rangers, and was one of the architects of the win with two superb saves from Alfredo Morelos efforts on goal.
The player’s excellent debut has lead to many Hoops fans to call for Brendan Rodgers to sign the player on a permanent deal in the summer.
However, the plot has thickened as Hibernian boss Neil Lennon has declared his interest in the player, as reported in the Daily Record.
Lennon had the player with him at Easter Road for a month in January, before Bain made the move to the Scottish Champions.

The 26-year-old didn’t play a single minute of football for the Edinburgh side – which allowed him to move to the Hoops in January- but Lennon was impressed enough that he wants to bring the player back in the summer.
Bain now has a huge decision to make, as he has to choose between Hibernian and the Hoops.
There seems more prospect of first-team football with the team currently forth in the Scottish Premiership, as Bain would be the at best second choice goalkeeper, battling with Ofir Marciano to be the number one.
Whilst if Bain joins the Hoops permanently, he will be battling with Craig Gordon and Dorus de Vries to be the man between the posts for the Bhoys.
Bain seemed to massively enjoy his debut for the Bhoys, as it did lead to an Old Firm victory that’s no surprise, but we will have to wait a little longer to find out if the player is committed to the Hoops in the long-term.
