Celtic fans on Twitter salute Scott Bain

A decade ago Scott Bain was cleaning Jamie Langfield’s boots at Aberdeen. On Thursday night the St Mirren goalkeeping coach was tweeting his praise for the Celtic keeper for his display in Valencia.

Bain’s career has taken off incredibly over the last 13 months, following his deadline day loan move to Celtic after a brief stint at Hibs.

Being on the bench as Celtic crashed out of last season’s Europa League tie to Zenit St Petersburg seemed to be far fetched but keeping Valencia down to a single goal in the Mestalla would have read like a ridiculous piece of fiction a year ago.

For half an hour on Thursday night, the 6 foot shot-stopper was well protected. But after the red card to Jeremy Toljan he was kept on his toes, pulling off two incredible saves to keep the Spanish side at bay until half time.

When called upon in the second half he was on top form until the 70th minute when the Celtic defence was cut open, allowing Kevin Gameiro to score.

On Sunday Bain returns to the day (domestic) job as Celtic look to power on in the SPFL, armed with the Bosman signing from Dundee that has racked up eight clean sheets on the bounce against Scottish clubs.
