Craig Gordon disappointed with his form for Celtic

Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has been working hard over the international break to get back to his best.

Craig Gordon has told Celtic’s official site that he has been training hard over the international break to get back to his top standards.

Gordon was in wonderful form last season, where he was one of the Bhoys' standout performers over the campaign.

However, his form has dipped this season – and the Scotland international has been working hard to get back to his best.

“The international breaks are an opportunity for a lot of the boys who have played a lot of games to have some time off and recharge the batteries to get ready for another busy period of games, but I’ve kept going,” Gordon said.

“I kept coming in to train and improve my game. I wanted to use this time wisely to work on a few things that should help me between now and the end of the season.

"I’ve still had a few days off but I have been working hard to get back to the levels I know I can work at.”

Gordon turned out to be a bargain buy for Celtic last season, as they brought him on a free transfer to replace Fraser Forster.

He is still well regarded by Bhoys supporters, but he will be keen to iron out some of the faults which have crept into his game.

Despite Gordon’s middling form Celtic have still been able to establish a lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership, and they have only conceded 11 times in 14 matches.

Celtic’s next fixture comes against Kilmarnock after the international break, and Gordon will be hoping that his hard work pays off.
