Gordon: Suarez save should be in my career highlights reel

first_imgCraig Gordon smiled as he recalled the outstanding save that denied Luis Suarez and said he hopes it will be included in his career highlights reel. The Celtic keeper blocked a header from the world class striker from six-yards out when Barcelona were still only 1-0 ahead on matchday five of the Champions League. His side went on to lose 2-0, which ultimately knocked them out of Europe, but Gordon admitted there was still a moment of personal glory to take from it. “Hopefully that will be in the highlights reel come the end of my career,” he said after having time to reflect on the result. “When you do it against a superstar like Suarez it’s always going to get talked about more.  “It’s something that we actually worked on during the week – the speed against goal. It’s how Barcelona get a lot of their goals so my goalkeeping coach had me well prepped for that kind of thing to happen. “We were doing similar exercises for a few days leading up to it. I didn’t make too many saves in training but I got the one that mattered.”Celtic still have one remaining Champions League fixture, away to Manchester City next month, before their campaign draws to a close.last_img read more
