Celtic have had issues in many areas of the park so far this season, one being goalkeeper, and that may well continue until the end of the season.
The news that Craig Gordon, as reported by the Scottish Sun, is set to return from his knee injury before the end of the season adds intrigue to the goalkeeping position, as the Hoops may have three fit and experienced shotstoppers in their squad sooner rather than later.
Dorus de Vries, who was originally signed to take Gordon’s place in goal but lost his place in the side to Gordon after some poor performances last season, is currently the Hoops number one whilst Gordon recuperates from his knee injury.
The Bhoys needed to sign a new number two goalkeeper in case de Vries got injured, and Scott Bain joined from Dundee, although it seems that the chances of Bain getting any playing time seem slim, unless de Vries suffers an injury.
The big decision which Brendan Rodgers may face will be what to do when Gordon returns to full fitness.
Will he keep faith with de Vries, a player he knows well and likes, or will Gordon once again become the Hoops first choice goalkeeper?
It is a decision which the Hoops manager will have to give a lot of thought to, and will add some intrigue come the end of the campaign.
