Could the same be said if he took the chance to move to west London? Unless he has telekinetic powers to use from the bench, the answer is no.
Celtic turned to the 32 year old to replace Fraser Forster and Gordon duly showed he was more than capable of filling the void and as any football fan will tell you, a trophy winning side simply has to have a goalkeeper worth his salt.
A save can be as good as three points at times and you only need to look at the likes of Thibaut Courtois and Petr Cech to see that is the case and if he decides to stay at Celtic, Gordon can be that man for them. Against Inter Milan in the second leg, Gordon made a world class save from Mauro Icardi and kept them in the game – he needs to ask himself if he would rather do that or appear in mickey mouse ties for Chelsea.
