Gordon started Celtic’s 1-1 draw with Dynamo Dresden on Saturday and kept a clean sheet before being replaced by Lukasz Zaluska at half-time.

The 31-year-old’s appearance was his first since featuring for Sunderland in April 2012, with that 2-2 draw against Bolton Wanderers his only competitive outing since February 2011.

The former Hearts keeper is happy to be back after recovering from a knee problem and he now wants to push for regular football in Ronny Deila’s Celtic side.

“I was a little nervous but I get that before every game,” said Gordon in the Sunday Mail.

“It felt like a big moment for me. I’ve worked really hard over the past couple of years to get to this point and although it was only 45 minutes it’s definitely a step in the right direction for me.

“I hope to move on and play more games. I want to play.

“I’ve done a reasonable amount of training since January. It’s the game situations I am looking forward to getting into now.

“Doing that has been a large part of my life and not to have that over the past couple of years has been difficult.”

ve been really impressed by Adrian when I've seen West Ham matches. Really good keeper and has earnt the 'Ammers many a point this season. Wouldn't swap Lloris for anyone either, he's currently far too good for us.
