Craig Gordon has signed a new contract with Celtic that will keep him at the club until June 2020 after a move to Chelsea collapsed in the January transfer window.

The Premier League leaders had identified the 34-year-old as the ideal back-up for Thibaut Courtois in case Asmir Begovic left for Bournemouth, but Chelsea had two bids knocked back by Celtic.

Gordon has now made the decision to commit his long-term future to Celtic instead and will stay put for an additional three seasons.

"It has taken a little while after the interest in the January window but it is good to finally get it done and concentrate on the rest of the season," Gordon said.

"It has been a good season, the team have been playing really well domestically, we have won every match since I have been back in the team, you cannot really ask for a lot more than that."

Gordon joined Celtic from Sunderland in 2014 and has since developed into a key figure at the Scottish champion, keeping an impressive 22 clean sheets this season.
