Devastated Craig Gordon was close to peak form, insists Steve Bruce
The Scotland international has not lived up to his reputation from north of the border since his 9million move from Hearts two years ago, but Bruce has been impressed with the 26-year-old this term. Bruce said: "I was absolutely delighted with his form. He was starting to look like the goalkeeper we paid all that money for.
"Of course he's upset, he's got a broken arm. He's had an operation to have a plate inserted and he's in plaster. To have him out for three months is a big blow. He is devastated with what happened but he will get over it."
