Craig Gordon says he wants to give Celtic boss Neil Lennon a tough decision to make when it comes to selecting his No.1 goalkeeper.

The 36-year-old endured a season of two halves last term, being an ever-present through the first half of the campaign up until the winter break before being replaced by Scott Bain between the sticks.

The former Sunderland shot stopper didn’t play another minute of Premiership football from that point on and a knee injury ruining Gordon’s chances of a recall towards the end of the season.

With a year left to run on his current contract at Parkhead, Gordon has set his sights on reclaiming his spot in the Bhoys first team having put his knee issue behind him during the summer break.

‘I need to try and get myself fit first and get 90 minutes under my belt.

Once I’ve proven to myself and everyone here that I can complete 90 minutes then it gives me a shot to get in the team,’ he told Celtic View.

‘It’s up to me to train as well as I can to force that to happen.

‘I still want to play as many games as I possibly can in the season but that’ll be up to the manager.

‘I’ll give it everything I possibly can to make sure it happens and then we’ll see where we go from there.’
