LOGAN BAILLY has revealed the reason he was not Celtic’s first-choice goalkeeper.
The former Belgian international claimed only injury prevented him from being the Hoops No.1.
Ex-boss Ronny Delia signed the 31-year-old shotstopper in 2015 as Craig Gordon’s understudy.
Bailly made just three senior appearances and did not figure following Dorus de Vries’ arrival from Nottingham Forest last August.
The ex-Borussia Monchengladbach goalie has now returned home to sign with Mouscron until 2019. He said: “Under normal circumstances, I’d have been a first-team regular with Celtic.
“But I got injured two days before our first Champions League qualifier. Another keeper came along to take my place.
“Our results were always up to standard, so there was no need to change the team.
“But my two seasons at the club were pure pleasure. Celtic are the best team I have played for.
“We won lots of trophies during my time with them. We set new points and goalscoring records for the Scottish League.”
