Gordon joined Celtic in the summer of 2014, becoming the first signing of Ronny Deila’s era. With an established reputation as one of the country’s top goalkeepers, Gordon spent seven years at Hearts before a big-money move to Sunderland in 2007, which at the time, made him the most expensive goalkeeper in British transfer history.

While he initially enhanced his reputation in the English Premier League, the last couple of years saw the goalkeeper missed out through injury. After a successful but lengthy rehabilitation process, Gordon was offered a contract at Paradise to initially provide competition to Fraser Forster and Lukasz Zaluska.

However, following Forster’s move to Southampton, Gordon would be rewarded with the position of first choice goalkeeper at the Scottish Champions. The shot-stopper’s consistency between the sticks for the Bhoys quickly earned him a well-deserved recall to the national side. And he collected his first cap in four years when Scotland faced England at Celtic Park in November 2014. Gordon’s successful first season at Celtic was rounded off by winning the Scottish Football Writers’ Player of the Year Award. Gordon confirmed that he would be wearing the number 1 jersey for next season.
