FORMER Sunderland keeper Craig Gordon has penned a two year deal with Scottish champions Celtic.

The Scotland international has not played a competitive game in two years after being plagued by knee problems since being released by Sunderland in the summer of 2012.

But Gordon, who trained with Rangers towards the end of last season, has now shaken off his injury woes to return to full fitness and has agreed a deal with Celtic, who have an option of extending his contract by another year.

Gordon has immediately jetted out to Austria to join Celtic at their pre-season training camp.
