You may remember in January that Chelsea were very interested in securing his signature as back-up to Thibaut Courtois, making a number of bids, and some Celtic supporters worried they may come back in for the Scotland international this summer with just 12 months remaining on his contract.
However, this new report suggests he will be rewarded for his fine form in Glasgow with a new 3-and-a-half year deal at the club, with the announcement due to be made in the coming week.
Celtic’s defensive form has been exceptional this season, in no small part to Gordon who has enhanced his all round distribution game, adding to his undoubted shot-stopping abilities.
The Bhoys have played 9 matches since the turn of the year and incredibly have kept clean sheets in 8 of them.
That may be why Celtic supporters are so delighted he’s signed a new deal and they took to Twitter to discuss the latest news…
Pleased to see Craig Gordon getting a new contract, improved a lot under Rodgers #sweeperkeeper

Very glad to hear Gordon signing new contract. His saves against Accies and ICT where outstanding. He's a good goalkeeper.

@FritzAGrandAuld gives us a chance to look for a young keeper with the potential to displace Gordon over the next few years.
