Celtic have announced a new contract for goalkeeper Scott Bain as he put pen to paper on a four-year contract, with the news announced on the club’s official Twitter feed.
✍️ @ScottBain_ pens new 4⃣ year deal with the Hoops 🙌

Bain was a regular presence in the Celtic side until he picked up a hand injury in August which ruled him our for two months and led to Neil Lennon securing the signing of Fraser Forster from Southampton on a season-long loan.
Forster has been in fine form for Celtic and a spectacular injury time save against Lazio helped the Hoops to a 2-1 victory.
Bain now has a fight on his hands if he is to reclaim his starting place between the sticks given Forster’s form and experience, but a new four-year deal goes a long way in a manager showing his faith in the player.
These Celtic fans on Twitter gave a less than enthusiastic reaction to the news about Bain’s stay being extended:
Why? Even if we don’t keep Forster after his loan. Craig Gordon is better then bain

Good news but not signing Forster on a permanent deal next summer would be a massive mistake.

Get Fraser Forster on a permanent deal ASAP

4 years for a squad keeper. At best.
