The 26-year-old on-loan shot-stopper is yet to play a single minute of competitive action for the Hoops since moving from Dundee in January, but is thrown in at the deep end for today’s match.
Bain will start at the home of Celtic’s bitter rivals following the news that Dorus de Vries was ruled out earlier this morning, and as you can probably imagine, the surprising news caught a lot of supporters off-guard.
But not that it’s sunk in a little bit, it seems like the majority of supporters are actually quite happy with the news, given de Vries was hardly in the best of form anyway:
Av moaned for weeks for Bain to get the gloves. Suppose hes got to start him off against the smaller teams

What do you think of the decision?
Will it prove to be a masterstroke by Brendan Rodgers, or an horrendous mistake?
