The Celtic stopper could and perhaps should have done better, but Donnelly's effort squirmed past him.

The good news for Bain is that he doesn't have an extensive catalogue of goalkeeping gaffes to his name, but it has been a concerning start to the season.

Up until now, the Scot, who joined Celtic 18 months ago, has been the model of consistency and reliability for the most part.

Thing is, errors can be debilitating for a player in any position, but they can be particularly ravenous for goalkeepers' confidence and time will tell whether this has an effect on him.
