The Scottish goalkeeper struggled for Celtic again this afternoon.
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.
Bain is rank! Get Gordon back in or buy a new keeper ♂️— Dino (@mikeyant02) August 10, 2019
Scott Bain has been dreadful here. Should do better for the goal, has allowed the Motherwell pressure to get the better of him, and now his distribution is going straight out the park— chris the postie (@naebuses) August 10, 2019

We need a new GK, don’t think Bain looks confident and ckearly making mistakes. That’s a key area if we are to progress on all fronts.— Walt Jabsco (@Boss_Skinhead) August 10, 2019
That's the some late era dundee Scott bain right there— Duncan (@ketaminedrams) August 10, 2019
Poor from Scott Bain there. Maybe time to think about a new keeper— Belfast Bhoy (@BhoyfromBelfast) August 10, 2019
Scott Bain isn’t good isn’t good enough to be Celtic’s no.1, and Lewis Morgan is a total waste of a jersey.— Labour Celtic Fans (@Labour_Celts) August 10, 2019
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.
