It was just a matter of time, Celtic have announced sweeper/keeper Craig Gordon will remain at Celtic Park at least until 2020.
The big stopper was the subject of intense speculation during the January transfer window, with various sections of the media trying their best to unsettle the player by linking him with a move to Premiership side Chelsea.
Despite the attraction of the ‘big Smoke’ Gordon kept his head down and his hands up, as manager Brendan Rodgers indicated he wanted him to stay at Paradise.
Enjoying one of his best seasons between the posts, there’s no doubt the gaffer has had a big influence on Craig’s decision to stay, along with a nice pay rise, but let’s not forget the role he played in one of the Foundation’s campaigns can’t be discounted.
He was a central part the Celtic Foundation’s homeless campaign, gaining many plaudits for his enthusiasm and commitment to the cause.
And to be honest, playing for Celtic and working at Celtic Park isn’t such a bad way to spend your career…
