A report from the Daily Mail has named a number of players who could potentially leave Celtic this summer. And while most of the names will surprise few Hoops fans, there is one interesting addition with Craig Gordon listed as a player who could move on at the end of the season.

Gordon has been a fantastic servant for the Bhoys since coming out of retirement to join the club in 2014. The 36-year-old has made 236 appearances for Celtic in all competitions, including a staggering 59 in Europe.

 

However, the Scotland international is yet to play in 2019 with Scott Bain establishing himself as first-choice since the resumption of the season in January.

While Gordon has been criticised at times during his Parkhead career, he is a brilliant understudy to have in the ranks given his experience and the quality that he has shown throughout his career.

But it appears that he may not be at Celtic for much longer. The Daily Mail has named Gordon as one of the players who could leave the club in the summer, along with the likes of Dedryck Boyata, Cristian Gamboa and Marvin Compper, as well as the loanees who are currently set to return to their parent sides.

It is not clear if Celtic want to offload Gordon or whether the keeper wants to secure first-team football ahead of the final years of his playing career. But it could be an exciting opportunity for a younger goalkeeper to potentially come in and push Bain next season.
