Craig Gordon hopes new Celtic deal is not his last
Gordon's new deal takes him to the summer of 2020 but he is already looking beyond that after putting pen to paper.
The former Hearts and Sunderland shot-stopper had to prove his worth to Brendan Rodgers, who made goalkeeper Dorus de Vries one of his first signings as Celtic boss.

But, after being dropped for four games in the opening months of the season, Gordon did just that and has played in every game since the end of September.
Gordon told Celtic's official website: "I think it's the same for every player when a new manager comes in, you want to prove your worth to the team.
"You also want to stay in the team and it's taken a little while for me to do that and to be able to adapt to the way he wants me to play.

"There may be one contract beyond this but it's good for the next three years to know that stability is there and I'm going to be here fighting for trophies."
