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?
