  • The future's in safe hands: Scott Bain signs four-year deal

    The future's in safe hands: Scott Bain signs four-year deal

    By: Tony Connelly on 10 May, 2018 18:59

  • SCOTT Bain will remain at Celtic after agreeing a four-year deal with the Scottish champions today (Thursday).

    The 26-year-old goalkeeper arrived at Paradise at the end of the January transfer window on a loan agreement from Dundee.

    His stay was due to expire at the close of the season, however Celtic are delighted to announce that Bain has signed a four-year contract which will see him remain at Paradise until at least the summer of 2022.

    Speaking exclusively to Celtic TV immediately after signing the contract, Bain said: “I’m delighted. It’s more than I obviously expected when I first came in. I’m over the moon.  

    “I don’t think it could have gone any better. It’s funny, there’s a lot of little things that went my way to get to Celtic on loan and then to play the game against Rangers, which sent me on my way to this four-year-deal. It’s been great and I’ve loved every minute of it.”

    Bain made his Celtic debut on March 11 in a Glasgow derby against Rangers at Ibrox. The Hoops stopper was given an unexpected place in the starting XI after Dorus de Vries was ruled out through injury the morning of the game.

    It was a highpressure situation but Bain was remarkable throughout the game and made several crucial saves which ultimately proved to be instrumental in a 10-man Celtic side’s 3-2 win.

    Reflecting on his impressive debut, Bain said: “That game showed the manager everything he needed to know. He said after the game that it’s one of the biggest games to play and it really showed him my mentality and that I could handle being a Celtic player."

    He has since gone on to make six appearances for Celtic with three clean sheets and in that time, Bain said he has come to realise the magnitude of each game when you play for Celtic, but he admitted he feels at home in the team.

    “There are no small games and there are no easy games here. Everyone ups their game to play Celtic and you need to be on it 100 per cent of the time, in games and training.

    “I’ve settled in well with all the boys in the changing room and they’ve made it really easy for me. It’s a great changing room to be in and a great club to be at.

    "When you’re not involved you know Celtic’s a big club but it’s not until you’re here that you fully realise the magnitude of it all and how many people have your eye on you.”

    Bain’s future may now be secured but he maintained that his immediate targets have not changed.

    “I have the same aims that I’ve had since I arrived here which is to improve as much as I can on a daily basis.

    “I have all the facilities here, the manager, the staff, the goalkeeping coaches like Woodsy, to reach my full potential. The sky is really the limit. It’s about working hard and putting my all into this club.”
