Was it a mistake to let Gordon leave?
Yes, he's a valuable player
No, he's too old now

A good servant, makes securing Forster imperative now. To lose both keepers and Simunovic isn’t ideal going into a new season with a new first team coach

These Celtic fans seem to think that with Gordon leaving now, the Hoops should secure the services of Fraser Forster soon.
While Gordon had joined Celtic back in the summer of 2014, he wasn’t a regular for the club in the 2019/20 season. He made only six appearances in all competitions and didn’t play even once in the Premiership. He made three Europa League appearances for the Hoops (via Transfermarkt).
Many other Celtic fans talked about how the club should deal with Gordon’s exit.

The Scottish Sun had reported that while the Hoops did make a contract offer to keep Gordon, they are also working on a deal to sign Forster once again this summer.
So this shows that progress is being made in this regard. Forster had been a regular in the 2019/20 season for the Hoops and because of that, he could be crucial to helping the club win a 10th Premiership title in a row next season.
