Celtic in 2014 made the controversial decision of putting their faith in the then 31-year-old keeper Craig Gorden but the gamble proved to be very fruitful in the end. Gorden has been a vital cog in the Celtics engine that has won back to back domestic trebles.
Gorden had not played competitive football for the better part of two years after being released by the then Premier League club, Sunderland. Gorden was working as a coach for Dumbarton and was also training occasionally with Rangers before being picked up by the Bhoys ahead of the 2014/15 season.
Since then, the 35-year-old has gone on to make 200 appearances for the Scottish champions winning 7 major trophies along the way.
The Scotland international still has a few years left in his career but it would a mistake to ignore his long tryst with injuries and hence the champions have begun their search for possible replacements.
The Belgian has been playing second fiddle ever since the arrival of Loris Karius at Liverpool but because of Karius’ erratic form, still got to play more than what a second choice keeper would do at a club as big as Liverpool.
The arrival of Brazilian, Allison though has made sure that first team opportunities would be hard to come by for the 30-year-old this season. Mignolet still has his prime goalkeeping years ahead of him and would hence be eager to seek new pastures to ply his trade and the Celtic Park could be a likely destination.
Mignolet has played under Brendan Rodgers before when the latter was the Liverpool gaffer and that could play a huge role in convincing the shot-stopper to move to Glasgow.
The Argentine expected big things to follow after his ambitious move to Tottenham but its been quite the opposite. The 26-year old’s development has stalled since his move to London and is currently a third choice keeper at Spurs behind Hugo Loris and Michel Vorm.
Gazzaniga is still young and could be an able replacement for Gorden at Celtic entertaining the 60,000 strong supporters at Celtic Park for many years to come.
