Former Celtic man Mikael Lustig was one of hundreds to react to the news of Scott Bain’s new Parkhead contract.
The Lowdown: Busy January
The Hoops have been extremely productive during the January window, bringing in four new players already.
Three have arrived from Japan and one from Ireland, with the club also working on making Jota and Cameron Carter-Vickers’ loan moves permanent.
The Latest: Bain contract
Celtic announced on Monday that Bain has signed a new deal through until 2024.
They shared the news on Instagram, with former right-back Lustig commenting ‘Torpedo’ along with heart eye and raised hands emojis.
The Verdict: Barkas and Hazard to leave?
Described by James McFadden as a shot-stopper who ‘makes it look easy’ with the ball at his feet, Bain has made just four appearances under Ange Postecoglou but has been a regular in the matchday squad.
And, with Bain signing new terms, that could mean that Vasilis Barkas and Conor Hazard may now seal exits.
There has been talk of that happening, and with Celtic also having high hopes for teenager Tobi Oluwayemi, now could be the time for the pair to depart, leaving Hart, Bain and Oluwayemi as options over the coming years.
