Rodgers set for huge Celtic dilemma if 6ft 3in colossus impresses v Dundee
An intriguing aspect of Celtic’s upcoming match against Dundee on Wednesday night is that 6ft 3in colossus Craig Gordon is set to make his first Hoops appearance in two months.
Brendan Rodgers has confirmed, as reported by the Daily Record, that current Hoops number one Scott Bain is ineligible to play against his parent club, which means that the 35-year-old Gordon is set to return after his knee injury.
Should Gordon impress in his return to the Hoops side, Rodgers will have a major dilemma on his hands.
Bain has been in excellent form since becoming the Hoops number one in the match against Rangers at Ibrox last month, his two saves from Alfredo Morelos were pivotal to the Hoops pulling off a 3-2 win.
He has followed this up with good displays against both Motherwell and Ross County, as the move to Glasgow has given the player a new lease of life.

However, Rodgers is a big fan of Gordon, and has kept him in the side even when he has made mistakes in games for the Bhoys.
Some supporters who have grown fond of Bain won’t like to hear this but should Gordon impress it seems likely that he will become a permanent fixture in the Hoops side once more.
It will be interesting to see if Bain remains at the Hoops after the end of the season, or if he makes the return to Dens Park.
