  • Craig Gordon extends Celtic contract

    Craig Gordon extends Celtic contract

    By: Newsroom Staff on 29 Jul, 2015 16:07

  • CELTIC are delighted to announce that Craig Gordon has signed a new contract that will now see him remain at the club until the summer of 2018.

    The Scottish internationalist joined Celtic last summer and proved to be a superb replacement for Fraser Forster.

    His performances throughout the campaign, both domestically and in Europe, confirmed his status as a top-class goalkeeper and saw him recalled to the Scotland national squad.

    Craig was an important player for the club last season and was delighted to win both a league and a League Cup medal, and he was voted the Scottish Football Writers' Player of the Year.

    Celtic supporters will be delighted to see that he’s staying with the Hoops for the next three years.

    Craig told the official website: “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 said: "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."
