The Celtic player has been speaking ahead of their new league campaign.
In comments posted on the Bhoys’ official Twitter account, the 32-year-old spoke about when he first arrived at the club and his hopes for the upcoming campaign.
Gordon signed for Celtic from Sunderland last summer, having not played a competitive match for more than two years due to a serious knee injury.
That meant the transfer was always a risk and yet it has proved to be anything but, with Gordon ending last season with 52 appearances along with a league and cup double.
Gordon was integral to that success and as the club attempts to reach the Champions League group stage the Scottish international has been reflecting on the past year.
“I’m happy with the way I’m playing,” the Celtic stopper said. “It’s a new season with new challenges now.
“There was extra motivation to come in and perform week in, week out and prove people wrong and I’m not at a level I’m happy with. I want to continue to improve and set the standards I have set for myself so far.”
It is testament to Gordon’s professionalism that he is not settling for past glories and instead is focused on maintaining his own high level of performance.
If he can do that, there is every chance Celtic manager Ronny Deila’s second year in charge could be even more succesful than the first.
