New Celtic signing Scott Bain has taken to social media to reveal his surprise and delight at joining the Scottish champions on loan until the end of the season.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper joined the Hoops alongside his Dundee team-mate Jack Hendry, in a double deal which almost missed the midnight deadline.

The delay was down involvement from Hibernian in the deal also – but everything was resolved and Bain’s transfer was wrapped up.

Now the goalkeeper has taken to Twitter to thank Celtic fans for his welcome.

“An unbelievable few days and a proud moment for me!” Bain said, as quoted on his personal Twitter account.

“Delighted to sign for Celtic Football Club. Thanks for all the messages and warm welcome, cant wait to get started!”

The move was almost scuppered as Bain had recently moved to Hibernian after a fall-out with Dundee manager Neil McCann.

However, as he never played for the Edinburgh, side, in a move which also involved Scott Allen moving from Celtic to Hibernian and Simon Murray swapping Hibernian for Dundee.

Bain will be at Celtic Park until the end of the season to provide competition for goalkeeper Dorus de Vries, who has recently taken over in goals from Craig Gordon, who is out of action for the next three months with a knee injury.

Bain’s first involvement with the first-team should be in the upcoming trip to play Kilmarnock on Saturday, where he will be substitute goalkeeper as the Hoops attempt to maintain their 11 point lead at the top of the league.
