Scott Bain and Neil McCann never did see eye-to-eye whilst at Dundee. It now appears that the Celtic goalkeeper has had a dig at his old boss on social media.
Bain played under McCann during his early days as Dundee manager. The Hoops goalkeeper had a nasty falling out with the Dundee manager after a game against Hamilton in October last year.
McCann was sacked as manager of the Dens Park side just yesterday. It was a decision that won’t have shocked many, but the bitterness between McCann and the Celtic support at large is hefty.
And it appears that things between both Bain and McCann obviously still haven’t settled either, if the goalkeeper’s social media post is anything to go by.
Excellent stuff from Scott Bain 👏

A laughing matter?
Bain certainly seems to be seeing the funny side in it all, if it was of course aimed at McCann. He has since taken the post down however. The former Dens Park goalkeeper hasn’t been shy in the past about speaking on his bust-up between the pair.
His journey therefore took him to a loan spell at Hibs as McCann tried to push him out of Dundee. That spell was cut short however as Celtic called on him in to be their number two.
Bain, of course, starred in an Old Firm win at Ibrox where he made a big late save from Alfredo Morelos. Supporters took to him instantly at Parkhead, but a series of unconvincing performances since then has solidified himself behind Craig Gordon.
It doesn’t seem like there’s going to be any change to that in the near future either. With Dorus de Vries a totally unreliable reserve, Bain’s glass ceiling will be sitting above the Dutchman.
Gordon hasn’t particularly had a campaign to remember, but he’s still a much better shot-stopper than the former Dundee man. As it stands, however, Bain seems to just love being at his boyhood heroes. A long-time Celtic supporter, he’s the perfect example of a fan living the dream.
With Celtic getting ready to face his former side Hibs this weekend, however, Bain will be in his usual place as first reserve.
