Craig Gordon will start for Celtic tomorrow night when the Scottish champions take on Manchester City in the Champions League.

Brendan Rodgers revealed the Scottish international will get the nod ahead of Dorus de Vries after the Dutchman sustained an injury in the 6-1 win over Kilmarnock.

Gordon has been the No.1 at Celtic for each of the past two seasons, but found himself playing second fiddle to De Vries following the former Nottingham Forest stopper’s arrival in Glasgow.

He’ll now get the chance to prove his worth when Pep Guardiola’s English Premier League leaders travel to Parkhead tomorrow.
