Plenty of Celtic fans have been left frustrated by Scott Bain’s recent performance in their recent 2-1 win over Motherwell

The Bhoys made it back-to-back wins in the Scottish Premiership, as they ran out 2-1 winners over Motherwell at Celtic on Saturday afternoon. The win means they’re now 20 points adrift of league-leaders Rangers in the table.

They took the lead through defender Stephen Welsh before netted his 16th goal of the season in all competitions after 50 minutes.

The visitors pulled a goal back on 66 minutes though, as Allan Campbell’s deflected strike went over Scott Bain in the Celtic goal, to make it a nervous finish for Neil Lennon’s side.

Should Bain be dropped vs St Mirren?

YES

YES

NO

NO

But Celtic held on to take the three points, and they’ll be hoping they can make it three consecutive wins in the Scottish Premiership when they return to action on when they take on St Mirren.

A number of Celtic supporters took to social media to react to the way that Bain conceded, with many criticising him for his role in Allan Campbell’s goal for Motherwell.

Take a look at the best of the reaction from Twitter below…

“Scott Bain is terrible with crosses. Away to St Johnstone and St Mirren – both won today – he will be tested far, far more. If he plays I honestly can’t see us winning with clean sheets.”

“If Lennon isn’t going to give Barkas a chance then we need to get another keeper in because Scott Bain is certainly not the answer.”

Which club did Brown join Celtic from?

“Scott Bain is the poorest keeper at Celtic and one of the weakest in the league. No presence at all.”

“Scott Bain is horrendous.”

“Scott Bain is absolutely atrocious. He almost single handedly cost us that game.”

“Bain is an utter disaster in goal. Going by Lennon’s criteria he should be dropped for Wednesday”

Only two players rated worse (6.6) than the 6-foot shot-stopper as per SofaScore ratings and with another game coming up on Wednesday, Lennon may want to think twice before turning to the 29-year-old again.
