Craig Gordon equalled a record standing nearly fifty years when he kept goal for a winning Celtic in Sunday’s BetFred Cup Final against Motherwell.
The big stopper, who’s wonder save from Louis Moult at 1-0, won his fourth consecutive medal, a feat last achieved by the Original Holy Goalie himself, John Fallon.
Like Gordon, Fallon had two League Cup medals, a Scottish Cup medal and a League badge in his locker when he played in the 1968/69 -1969/70 seasons.
John played in the 1969 Scottish Cup Final, a 4-0 thrashing of Rangers, most notable for the third goal when a young George Connelly waltzed round the Rangers keeper after intercepting a John Greig pass at the edge of his box.
His two League Cup medals came courtesy of a 6-2 thrashing of Hibs and a narrow 1-0 win over St Johnstone.
Craig to his credit has not only repeated the feat, but has also an enviable record of keeping a clean sheet in each of his last three League Cup Finals, against Dundee United, Aberdeen and now Motherwell.
He has also played a massive part in our 65 game unbeaten run, something a lot of the support should remember when they get on his back….
