Former Sunderland stopper links up with SPL champions.

Ex-Sunderland keeper Craig Gordon has joined Scottish giants Celtic.

Gordon, 31, has signed a two-year deal at Celtic Park, with the option of a third year.

The Scottish international is back to full fitness having battled back from serious knee problems since departing the Stadium of Light in summer 2012.

Gordon spent nearly five years on Wearside after joining from Hearts in August 2007.

He made 95 appearances in all competitions, winning the Premier League Save of the 20 Seasons award with a stunning stop against Bolton during the 2011-12 campaign.
