Some Celtic fans on Twitter are encouraging Neil Lennon to sign an upgrade on Scott Bain.

It has been a less-than-inspiring start to the season for the 27-year-old Hoops goalkeeper.

He has looked shaky in a number of Celtic's Champions League qualifiers in recent weeks, and he was to blame this afternoon as Lennon's side fell behind in their 5-2 win at Motherwell.

Bain has been the Bhoys' number one since arriving under Brendan Rodgers 18 months ago but, with three weeks to go in the window, some fans of the Parkhead club want a better option added to the squad.

 

There's no denying that Bain hasn't looked himself in recent weeks, but he hasn't done enough wrong to warrant the gloves being taken off him. Not yet.

With Craig Gordon waiting in the wings, the former Dundee man knows that he's on a slippery slope here and that should be enough of a kick up the backside for him.

In terms of talent, the Celtic stopper is class, but if he doesn't buck up his ideas over the coming weeks then Lennon could and probably should sign a new keeper.
