BiogLondon born Goalkeeper Jonathan Gould ( son of English striker Bobby Gould) was signed by Wim Jansen from Bradford City at the start of the 1997 - 1998 season.
Gould was instrumental in the success of the Celtic team in stopping Rangers ten-in-a-row, a far cry from Bradford City Reserves where he had been just a year before. Despite injury problems in the 1998-1999 and the arrival of Russian international Dmirti Kharine Gould remained Celtic's number 1 goalkeeper until the 2000-2001 season when he was replaced by Robert Douglas.
Gould stayed with Celtic until 2003 when he left to join Craig Brown's Preston North End in the English Championship. Gould is now retired and coaches in the New Zealand league with his father. Gould also played twice for Scotland and was a member of the 1998 World Cup Squad although he was third choice behind Jim Leighton and Neil Sullivan.
Since moving to New Zealand Jonathon has done well. He was one of the prime movers in the setting up and running of the Hawks Bay club and has a reputation as a very good youth coach.
He is also an assistant coach with the Wellington Phoenix, the New Zealand club that compete in the Australian Hyundai A-League and was still not averse to turning out and playing at the age of 41.
Craig Burley on Jonathan Gould, his player of the year for season 1997-8: "I've thought long and hard about my player of the year, and my choice is Jonathan Gould. He was a real unsung hero, and he came from nowhere. He told me the story of when he phoned his mate to tell him that he was moving from being third-choice keeper at Bradford to Celtic. His mate was happy and told him that it would be good for him to play first-team football again, that that a bit of form might lead to him getting a move to a bigger club within a couple of months. Gouldy's reply was, "I won't get any bigger than Celtic. This is the best move of my career." His mate said "Steady, Gouldy. Stalybridge Celtic are a decent club, but you've got to aim higher in the long run!" His mate couldn't believe it when Gouldy told him that it was Glasgow Celtic he was signing for. He pulled off some great saves , and to go from being bombed out at Bradford to the pressure-pot of Celtic spoke volumes for his mental strength and ability." from The Inner Sanctum: The Secrets Behind Celtic's 1997-8 Title Win by Mark Guidi
