Video: Craig Gordon Howler Gifts RB Leipzig Crucial Second Goal at Celtic Park

A colossal error from Craig Gordon left Celtic on the brink of Europa League elimination tonight after the experienced goalkeeper somehow managed to gift RB Salzburg a priceless second goal.

The Hoops went into tonight’s final group stage match knowing a solitary point would be enough to ensure qualification for the knockout stages but, in truth, they were outclassed by their Austrian opponents from the very first minute.

Salzburg really should’ve been behind at half-time and they were in the 67th minute when Israel striker Moanes Dabour headed home from close-range.

That made it an uphill task for Celtic but it became Mission Impossible 10 minutes later when Gordon inexplicably rolled the ball out too casually in-front of Fredrik Gulbrandsen:

In fairness, Gordon had kept Celtic in the tie with a string of impressive stops before he dropped that clanger, but what do you think of the error?
