SCOTT Bain is set to miss only one game for Celtic despite fears a hand injury could sideline him for months.

The goalkeeper was in a lot of pain after the FC Cluj game and since then has had two scans on his hand, which had been bothering him for a while, and they showed the damage was not as serious as first thought.

Craig Gordon is likely to face Dunfermline on Saturday in the Betfred Cup, a move which may have happened anyway as Neil Lennon has been looking for an excuse to play his more experienced keeper.

There is even a suggestion that Bain could be fit for the weekend but probably won't be risked against the Championship side at Celtic Park.

Bain did not have his best game in Tuesday's defeat but has been superb since breaking into the Celtic team in January and has impressed Lennon.

However, the manager said two weeks ago that the position of first choice goalkeeper was still up for grabs.
