Craig Sinclair Gordon (born 31 December 1982) is a Scottish professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Celtic.

Gordon started his career with Heart of Midlothian (Hearts). He spent time on loan at Cowdenbeath (in 2001–02), before establishing himself as Hearts first-choice keeper between 2003 and 2007, winning the Scottish Cup in 2005–06. English Premier League club Sunderland bought him in 2007 for £9 million (a then British transfer record fee a goalkeeper).

Gordon suffered serious injuries during his time with Sunderland and was released from his contract in 2012. After two years out of the professional game, Gordon signed for Celtic in July 2014. He has since won two Scottish League titles and two Scottish League Cups with Celtic.

He also became the regular goalkeeper for the Scotland national football team between 2004 and 2010, before injuries interrupted his career, but returned to the national set-up in 2014. Gordon is a former recipient of the Young Player of the Year (in 2004) and a twice winner of Footballer of the Year (in 2006 and 2015), as voted for by the Scottish Football Writers'.
