One of the most unlikely heroes in Celtic’s 3-2 win over Rangers at Ibrox, which all but clinched the league title, is goalkeeper Scott Bain.

The 26-year-old, who is on-loan from Dundee at the club until the end of the season, didn’t have the best of starts to the match but more than made up for it with second-half saves from Jason Cummings and Alfredo Morelos.

Bain was a late replacement for Dorus de Vries, who suffered an ankle injury in training, and his performance in the second-half as the Hoops were holding on for the win was so good that Brendan Rodgers may well be considering making the loan move permanent.

There’s no doubt that Bain should start in the Bhoys’ next game, against Motherwell at Fir Park next Sunday, even if de Vries has recovered from his injury.

De Vries would have went to pieces after conceding an early goal in the game, but Bain managed to recover and turn in a good performance in the second-half in particular.

When Bain started the season at Dundee the prospects of him being an Old Firm hero for the Bhoys seemed remote at best, but after his performance at Ibrox he is well-worth keeping around at Celtic Park.
