NEIL LENNON has revealed Celtic are still talking to free agent Craig Gordon.

And the Celtic boss has urged the 37-year-old keeper to decide his future soon after already knocking back a contract on reduced terms.

Gordon, who is wanted by St Mirren and his former club Hearts, has not been at pre-season training at Lennoxtown as he weighs up his options.

The former Scotland international No.1, who lost his first-team place to on-loan Fraser Forster last term, hasn’t played a first team game since figuring in the 2-0 loss in the Europa League Group B outing against Cluj in Romania in December.

Gordon made only six appearances in all competitions after starting the campaign as back-up to Scott Bain.

He was called in after the former Dundee netminder sustained a broken finger in the 4-3 Champions League exit against Dan Petrescu’s side in August.

However, Gordon dropped out again when Forster arrived later in the month following his temporary transfer season-long agreement.

Lennon, speaking to the Daily Record, said: “Talks are ongoing between the club and Craig. We haven’t seen him, he is not at training at the minute.

“Hopefully, we get that resolved sooner rather than later.”
