Sunderland’s Gordon: Scottish keepers are far from a joke

Gordon became the most expensive keeper in British football when he joined Sunderland for £9million this week.

He said: “As soon as I started speaking to the media, everyone said the same thing about the old joke about Scottish keepers.

“Hopefully, I can change that. The fee doesn’t worry me. They are going up all the time and just because it is a keeper, people make a lot of it.

“It won’t be long before there will be signings which are bigger than this.”
