The new Hoops goalkeeper was finally confirmed in the early hours of this morning as one of Brendan Rodgers’ two signings on transfer deadline day.
He was due to be on the bench for Hibs in their Scottish Premiership clash with Motherwell at Easter Road last night – continuing in his role as backup goalkeeper for the Hibees.
Bain only joined Neil Lennon’s squad on the 1st of this month, being shipped out on loan from Dundee after a reported fall out with Neil McCann.
But he’s now at Celtic on loan after his deal at Hibs was cancelled, setting up the move to the Scottish champions to ease their goalkeeping issues.
Rodgers has been on the lookout for a goalkeeper since Craig Gordon’s injury against Hibs at the weekend.
And after meeting the manager’s needs by signing, Bain told how he can’t quite believe he’s now a Celtic player.
Speaking to celticfc.net, Bain said: “This is biggest club in Scotland and one of the biggest clubs in the world, so I just can’t believe that I’m here.
“I phoned my dad earlier today just to say that I was leaving Easter Road and on the road to Glasgow, and he was buzzing and delighted for me. I can’t believe I was on the bench for Hibs against Celtic last weekend and then, just a few days later, I’m signing for Celtic.
“It’s not something that, when I went on loan to Hibs, I thought was ever going to happen, so the past few days have been great, and to get it over the line and be here is absolutely amazing.”
Bain should go straight into Celtic’s squad when they play Kilmarnock on Saturday in the Scottish Premiership’s early kick-off.
