Despite lots of rumors and reports to the contrary, Sky Sports sources are reporting that Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon is still a target to Chelsea. It is thought that Asmir Begovic, the current Chelsea back up is about to leave the club in favor of a move to Bournemouth.

Gordon is a veteran of the Barclay’s Premier League, having featured at Sunderland for a number of seasons before moving north of the border. Celtic are hopeful, or were hopeful, tying down the Scottish international to a new contract.

But that doesn’t look likely at this point as the appeal of London and football with the league-leading Chelsea is likely too much. Celtic should get as much money as possible from this and then reinvest it.

A new, young goalkeeper could be Celtic’s number one for a decade to come if they can find the right man. With Rodgers’ talent to develop players, it would be a very wise thing to do with the money as they are by far the best side in Scotland at the moment.


  1. Craig Gordon isnt and has never been a Celtic Man.So why even contemplate offering a better deal to a goalie who has never showed one ounce of Loyalty to a Club who gave him the platform to get back to were he is,Get shot of him.We need players who are Celtic minded.End Of.Let him go to Chelsea for the dough and keep the bench warm..In the meantime Our Wonderful Club grows and goes from strength to strength.The most successful and biggest Club in Scotland.HH.
