Midweek Sport - - THURSDAY APRIL 12 -

SUN­DER­LAND goal­keeper Craig Gor­don tar­get for Celtic.

Hoops boss Neil Len­non will turn his sights to the free agent if he fails with a £2mil­lion bid for Fraser Forster.

Forster has spent two sea­sons on loan at Park­head, but Gor­don is be­ing lined-up as re­place­ment if New­cas­tle de­cide not to part with their third-choice stop­per. A per­sis­tent knee in­jury has limited the Scot­land in­ter­na­tional to 87 Premier League games in five sea­sons at the Sta­dium of Light. But that won’t stop Len­non tak­ing a gam­ble on the for­mer Hearts stop­per if Forster

proves to be a no-go.
