Morton goalkeeper Aidan McAdams has tipped Craig Gordon to be a key man for Hearts in next Sunday’s Scottish Cup Final. Gordon will be up against Celtic, who he left at the end of last season.
McAdams, who had a spell at Celtic with Gordon, believes that the veteran goalkeeper will be out to send a message to Celtic that they were wrong not to agree a new contract with him.
“A top class goalie”
“I think he’ll definitely be looking to prove a few people wrong. He’s a top glass goalie and I wish him all the best” McAdams said.
The Championship goalkeeper then disclosed what he learned from Gordon whilst both players were at Celtic.
“It was good to come up against him and speak to him after the game” McAdams said, following Morton’s recent game against Hearts.
“I’ve learned from him”
“I was there for a year under him at Celtic. It was more of a watching Craig in training, more than him giving me advice. I think that’s been the case with a lot of the goalkeepers, just watching and learning, the things that they do, how professional they are on and off the pitch. He’s been great for when I was at Celtic, and obviously he’s a top-class goalkeeper, and obviously I’ve learned from him.”
That learning from Gordon seems to have paid off for McAdams. He was excellent for Morton in the recent 2-0 loss to Hearts. He pulled off a string of fine saves, and was unlucky to be on the losing team.
