Celtic keeper Craig Gordon signs new deal extending stay to 2018


Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon has signed a new deal with the Scottish champions until the summer of 2018.

The 32 year old was signed by Celtic last summer and became the Parkhead side’s number one keeper following the departure of Englishman Fraser Forster.

Speaking to the official Celtic website, Gordon said: “I am absolutely delighted to extend my contract with Celtic, such a fantastic football club. I have enjoyed my first year immensely at Celtic.

“It has been great to enjoy success already and I’m looking forward to giving everything to bring more good times to our supporters who have given me such a tremendous welcome to the Club.”

Celtic manager Ronny Deila added: “This is brilliant news and we’re all delighted that Craig has extended his contract at the club.

“He was my first signing as Celtic manager and since he joined us last summer, he has been an important member of the squad and he’s made a great contribution to our success. Craig’s a top-class goalkeeper and we’re lucky to have him here at Celtic.”
