Video: Watch Celtic’s Craig Gordon Pull Off Two Outstanding Saves to Deny Rangers

Celtic were held to a 0-0 draw in today’s match against bitter rivals Rangers – but they had goalkeeper Craig Gordon to thank for earning them anything from the game at all.

The Hoops went into today’s clash at home as overwhelming favourites against the Gers, who currently sit in third in the Scottish Premiership, but it was a much more even affair than most supporters had anticipated.

Alfredo Morelos missed several glorious opportunities to score, the best of which came in the second-half – where he was spectacularly denied by Gordon at point-blank range:

Gordon excelled himself at various points throughout the encounter and the second of which came when he one-handedly denied James Tavernier, who must’ve been expecting to see the net bulge:

Celtic, of course, had opportunities of their own, and Scott Sinclair will be at home tonight wondering how he didn’t find the net, but surely Gordon takes a lot of credit this afternoon?

He’s been taking a bit of stick recently, but surely Gordon more than earned his wages today, eh?

What do you think?
