A Celtic fan has posted an image on Twitter of former goalkeeper Gordon Marshall and a lot of the fanbase are now discussing his time at the club.
St.Anthony tweeted out the picture saying: “Pic before bed: Gordon Marshall. By all accounts a decent guy but sadly he will always be remembered for that blunder in the Raith Rovers final in 1994 which cost us the trophy. Was a part time hairdresser as well.”
Is Marshall Celtic's worst ever goalkeeper?
It seems like Marshall had more bad moments than good in his 100 league appearances for the club, per thecelticwiki, as fans flooded the post mocking his time playing for the Scottish side.
However it seems like the player himself takes these comments with a pinch of salt, as he said in the past, per thecelticwiki, “Believe me. Some folk will like you, some folk will think: ‘for what we paid [£270,000], it’s what we got – value for money’. Others will say, ‘he cost us the bloody League Cup final’!”
Sadly the side lost that final on penalties after his error, and even though he did have some good performances for the club, most fans mainly remember this final.
He did manage however to win the league title and League Cup during his time at the Paradise.
Here is what fans had to say:

I’ll always remember him for time wasting when his team was 3-0 down against us and we needed goals. A total imposter.

Supposedly a better hairdresser than goalkeeper and I wouldn’t trust him with either

Probably the worst in my lifetime and that includes Carl Muggleton

Awful. Don’t remember him making a save he should t have made. Slow, Dodgy handling. Never good enough.
