Celtic goalkeeper Scott Bain has signed a new four-year deal with the Scottish Premiership champions.
Bain, who has made three appearances for Scotland, joins Hoops winger James Forrest, who penned a new four-year deal on Wednesday.
The deal takes the former Dundee player up to the summer of 2023, a year beyond his previous deal.
The 27-year-old lost his first-team place to Fraser Forster, who is on loan from Southampton until the end of the season, after suffering a dislocated thumb in August.
Bain joined the Hoops on loan in January last year after initially being on loan at Hibernian from Dundee, and made his debut in the 3-2 win over Rangers at Ibrox.
"It's fantastic to get it done," the former Dundee player told the club's website. "It lets me fully focus on getting fit and getting back in the team.
"It's something that's been in the works for a while, so I'm glad to finally have it finalised.
"It's really enjoyable to be part of a team that's going for trophies and winning the majority of games. You have to thrive off that kind of pressure here. For me to be a part of that has been a dream."
Bain, who has kept 27 clean sheets in 45 appearances, added: "I've developed as a person and as a player here at Celtic. Being around people who want to make you better and train you to a high standard brings the best out in you.
"That, and being around good people every day helps you as a person and a human being as well as becoming a better football player."
Scotland international Forrest has won eight league titles, five Scottish Cups and four League Cups since making his debut in May 2010 and was named the PFA Scotland Player of the Year last season.
