Craig Gordon gives surprising admission over which Celtic games he prefers

Craig Gordon has given a surprising admission over which games he prefers to play in.

Speaking to the Celtic View, the Scottish goalkeeper has admitted he much prefers playing in games when the Bhoys are scoring goals for fun, rather than defending.

He said: “I prefer games where I barely touch the ball and I can watch the team score a few goals up the other end of the pitch.”

Gordon returned to his homeland in July 2014 to sign with Scottish Premiership side Celtic, agreeing a three year deal having been without a club for two years.

After enjoying a productive spell with Sunderland, Gordon, 32, suffered a series of knee injuries that reduced his chances of continuing his professional career, and saw him head into coaching after he left the Stadium of Light in the summer of 2012.

Yet, he overcame his problems to sign with Ronny Deila’s men at the beginning of this season, and he has played a vital part for the Bhoys as they clinched the League Cup earlier in the campaign, as well as leading the league race heading into the final weeks.

Considering he has been hit with consistent injury problems in the past, Gordon has done incredibly well to register an impressive 44 appearances already, and his record looks even greater when referencing that he has only conceded 29 goals - and has kept 24 clean sheets - in the same time frame.

Considering Gordon is keen on games when he does not have much work to do, his impressive clean sheet record suggests that he made the right decision in signing for Celtic at the start of the season.
