Born on the 22nd of November 1991, Scott Bain is a no-nonsense goalkeeper hailing from Scotland. A six footer with a slim build, Bain tips the scales at 11st. When the Celtic team takes to the pitch, you'll find goalie number 29 holding the fort.

His journey towards gaining a spot in the Celtic squad wasn't a straight line. Having cut his teeth at Elgin City in 2010/11 season, Bain made a humble start with 11 appearances. In 2011/12, stronger performances led to a move to Alloa Athletic where he started 30 times.

Bain's rise continued as he established himself as a key player at Alloa Athletic. During seasons 2012 - 2014, the netminder was a consistent figure with 70 starts overall. His contributions were not unrecognised, resulting in a transfer to Dundee in season 2014/15.

At Dundee, Bain made an immediate impact with a solid 22 appearances in his maiden term. Over the next three seasons, he featured a combined total of 85 times for the Dens park outfit and became a trusted figure between the sticks. Such performance was bound to catch the attention of larger clubs, Celtic being one of them.

The 2017/18 season proved pivotal as it saw Bain earn his first team strip at Celtic after a stint of twelve appearances at Dundee. His initial season at Parkhead saw him start seven times. As the seasons rolled on, Bain saw fluctuating gametime. From featuring 20 times in 2018/19 season, he only donned the keeper's gloves twice in the subsequent season. His appearances picked up again in the season of 2020/21 with 18 starts, only to dip again to a solitary start in the following term. In the current season of 2023/24, he has been in the starting line-up thrice.

The lad from Scotland has shown his worth time and again. Despite some tough times, he soldiered on and continues to make his mark. Here's to hoping he enjoys a solid 2024/25 season with the Hoops.
