Watch the Craig Gordon mistake that sums up Celtic’s woeful European season

Sunday league stuff

Friends and family of Craig Gordon, avert your eyes now.

The Celtic goalkeeper came up with a horrific howler during the Hoops’ Europa League clash with Fenerbahce on Thursday night.

With Lazar Markovic bearing down on goal, Gordon took his eyes off the ball and allowed it to glide through his legs under almost no pressure.

Three sliding defenders couldn’t stop the on-loan Liverpool man from finding the net and although Kris Commons found an equaliser for the Bhoys, it’s still been a massively disappointing campaign for the Scottish champs.

The error was so bad that Markovic didn’t really want to celebrate the goal. You know it’s bad when the scorer takes pity on you.
