Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has given a positive fitness update as reported by the Glasgow Evening Times.
Gordon has been a regular for the Bhoys this season after Ronny Deila opted to sign him last summer, presenting him with the chance to put an end to two years of frustration after suffering with injury.
He’s taken that chance and has established himself as Celtic’s and Scotland’s number one and the good news is that he’s not feeling any signs of previous problems.
“It is a great feeling to be back involved. Physically, I am pain free and injury free and I am loving playing,” he said.
“That is more than 40 games this season and there are a fair few still to come.”
Celtic are chasing an important treble and for them to have a better chance of securing that aim, they need all of their key players in important positions to stay injury free and positive from the mental side of things.
Gordon has made the difference in some tight matches already this season and also provides experience and leadership at the back of the team, which is important in terms of organising the defence.
His admission that he’s feeling no signs of previous injuries is encouraging because it removes any element of doubt in his mind.
He’s not freshly back from injury, but weaker individuals mentally may have still worried about the possibility of an old problem coming back to haunt them.
However, Gordon’s not one of them, he’s not looking backwards and seems determined to be holding more silverware before the end of the campaign.
