Scott Bain (born 22 November 1991) is a Scottish footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Celtic. He has previously played for Aberdeen, Elgin City, Alloa Athletic and Dundee.

Club career[edit]

Aberdeen[edit]

Bain began his footballing career at Aberdeen's academy. Shortly after his promotion to the first team, he was loaned to Elgin City, where he made his professional debut.[1][2] In May 2011, Bain was released by Aberdeen.

Alloa Athletic[edit]

In June 2011, Bain signed a one-year contract with Scottish Third Division side Alloa Athletic.[3] He established himself as a first-team regular, and helped the club to consecutive promotions in his first two seasons.

Dundee[edit]

On 29 May 2014, Bain signed a three-year contract with Dundee.[4] He made his debut on 26 August 2014, in a 4–0 win against Raith Rovers in the Scottish League Cup.[5] Bain made a first league appearance for Dundee in October 2014, when Kyle Letheren was injured during a pre-match exercise.[6] On 6 April 2015, he signed a new contract with Dundee, extending his deal with the club until 2018.[7] Bain was dropped from the Dundee first team squad by manager Neil McCann in November 2017, for unspecified disciplinary reasons.[8][9]

Hibernian (loan)[edit]

On 1 January 2018, it was announced that Bain had joined Hibernian on loan until the end of the 2017–18 season.[10][11][12] Hibernian cancelled the loan on 31 January, which allowed Bain to join Celtic instead.[13]

Celtic[edit]

Bain joined Celtic on 31 January 2018, initially on loan from Dundee.[13] Celtic needed another goalkeeper to provide competition for Dorus de Vries, following an injury to Craig Gordon.[13] Bain made his first appearance for Celtic on 11 March, in a 3–2 win against Rangers, after de Vries suffered an injury in training.[14]

With his contract with Dundee due to expire at the end of the 2017–18 season, Bain signed a four-year contract with Celtic in May 2018.[15] Bain played regularly for Celtic after the January 2019 winter break.[16]

In October 2019 he signed a new one-year contract with the club.[17]

International career[edit]

Due to an injury to Allan McGregor, Scotland manager Gordon Strachan called Bain into the national squad for a friendly with Qatar and a UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying match with the Republic of Ireland in June 2015.[18]

Bain was recalled to the squad in May 2018 for friendly matches against Peru and Mexico, after McGregor again dropped out through injury.[19] He made his first full international appearance on 2 June 2018, in a 1–0 defeat against Mexico.[20] His second cap came in a 3–0 defeat against Kazakhstan in Euro 2020 qualification.[21]
