The question of Craig Gordon's goalkeeping has been debated on and off since we signed him .
Last night he celebrated 200 games in Celtic goals with 100 clean sheets . Now I don't care a hoot what anyone says but that is one hell of an achievement especially when we note some of the defenders he played behind . Ambrose was treated like dirt by many Celtic fans, a bombscare, after Ambrose he had Boyata also declared useless by fans and he too a bombscare . Added to that who the fans use to call sick-note, and is now finished Lusig .
How has Gordon done so good . i remember R Simpson lauded as a brilliant keeper, he had 91 shoot- outs out of 188 games . So Gordon 's record is better.

Great shot stopper for me OMC and one of the best keepers Celtic have had. Unduly condemned by many! ☘️.

I'll weigh in here. Gordon does what it says on the tin, Goalkeeper. Makes great saves and has kept us in a few games but his distribution is sometimes erratic, sometimes bizarre. He has a tendency to palm shots back into open play when he has the option to clear it. Celtic really need to be looking now for his long time successor.

I believe we got CG for free, ( £9 Million ) Keeper.

CG trained with sevco 2013 never got a contract. Guess who's kicking themselves now.

Whoever signed him should get a pat on the back and the fans should appreciate him more.

If CG was to leave there would be a queue. Hail Hail.

Sold big Forster for 10 million and replaced by a free! Gets beat far to often at his near post time after time. Cross balls and when he rushes out the box he gives you palpatations😱.

Goalkeepers will be beaten and a striker will miss, we give the striker other chances but not the keepers.

We forget the unbeaten run and winning games was not only down to us scoring, it was not letting goals as well.

Don't get me wrong am not innocent when a player gives me the Palpys. I like a wee roar like the rest you you. hail hail.

Gordon's main attributes great shot stopper . great instinctive reactive stopper (as good as I've seen with us) . biggest problem isn't the areas where he is poor as such but the fact that so far into his career he hasn't been able to address and correct / improve his faults .

Craig Gordon has done well to play that amount of games but I think it's a stretch to say he's the up with the best we've had.
Good shot stopper but that's it.
Out of the last 3 main keepers we've had he'd be my 3rd choice behind big Fraser and boruc.

06 Apr 2018 13:22:27
Forster is best I've seen and between boruc and Gordon for second.

Gordon played well on his return, If I compare him with Bain he might be a better shot stopper but Bain is better at cross balls and distribution of the ball with his feet. Bain may well get a good run and show that he is just as good a shot stopper time will tell. Already said on numerous occassions i'd prefer to have Bain and someone else fighting for the No 1 shirt next season and that's not being disrespectful to Gordon who I rated very highly before he came to Celtic. We really need to have 2 keepers who have a good 5+ years ahead of them fighting for the No 1 shirt. Looking forward to Hazard being in the mix in the future.

Gordon is a bomb scare at times but he has also saved us a few times.

To have played 200 games and secure 100 clean sheets is a great record.

For me last few keepers the best was Forster, Boruc, then Gordon.

I fear for the health of many of our supporters . They are causing themselves unnecessary heart- attacks, their lack of confidence in Gordon our goalkeeper and our black centre halves Ambrose and Boyata are completely out of touch with reality .
Ambrose was a very good centre back but mouths from the stands did their best to destroy his confidence and eventually they did .
Thank God Ambrose has regained his confidence at Hibs and is one of the best cb's in Scotland outside Celtic . Boyata and Gordon have held their confidence together despite our supporters.
