Where opinions speak louder than goals

“Magic”, “Permanent deal” – Fans on Twitter react to Celtic’s latest acquisition

The stars have aligned for Scott Bain this season, with the goalkeeper sealing a permanent move to league champions Celtic after a difficult start to the campaign.

It has been an up-and-down season for the 26-year-old, who started at Dundee and briefly moved to Hibernian before joining Celtic and finally signing a four-year permanent deal at the club.

Bain was frozen out at Dens Park after a disagreement with Neil McCann and did not play a game for more than four months after failing to break into the Hibs team while on loan.

However, injury to Craig Gordon meant Celtic swooped and he has not looked back, impressing in his six outings for the club after being thrown in the mix against Rangers in March.

After finally securing a move away from Dundee, Bain admitted he has been stunned by his own journey.

While many believe signing the 26-year-old is a massive gamble by Brendan Rodgers, however, the reverse could be the case. Unlike senior colleagues, Gordon and Dorus de Vries, Bain is hungrier for success. Both are approaching their fourth decade and have won everything.

Here are some tweets from fans reacting to the deal:
