Celtic Fans Make Case For Craig Gordon After Dorus De Vries’ Barcelona Display

Celtic Fans Make Case For Craig Gordon After Dorus De Vries’ Barcelona Display

Celtic were absolutely dismantled by Barcelona in the Nou Camp tonight, losing 7-0, and some of the club’s supporters are clamouring for Craig Gordon to be reinstated.

The goalkeeper has been dropped and replaced by new signing Dorus de Vries, who has started the last two Scottish Premiership games against Aberdeen and Rangers.

The Dutchman made his European bow for the Hoops this evening in Catalonia, but was left shell-shocked by a stunning Barca display, with Messi, Neymar, Suarez and Iniesta all getting on the score-sheet.

In truth, Celtic never looked like taking anything from the match, against a team who were far superior, but some supporters reckon de Vries could’ve performed a lot better – and Gordon might have conceded less.

There was a lot of love for Gordon on social media in the aftermath of the result, with some fans stating his case for re-selection:

Celtic travel to Inverness on Sunday – who would you rather see between the sticks?
