Celtic midfielder Ryan Christie has spoken highly of Southampton-owned goalkeeper Fraser Forster to The Sunday Post.
Forster, who joined Celtic on a season-long loan deal from Premier League club Southampton in the summer transfer window, has been playing well for the Hoops this season.
The 31-year-old England international goalkeeper was brilliant for the Bhoys on Thursday evening, as the Glasgow giants played out a 1-1 draw with FC Copenhagen away from home in Denmark in the first leg of their Europa League Round of 32.
The goalkeeper made some good saves and also denied Copenhagen from the penalty spot – the fourth time he has saved a spot kick this season.
Celtic midfielder Christie has raved about Forster, and has said that he and his teammates have a lot of confidence in him.
Christie told The Sunday Post: “Yeah, I went straight up to Fraser after the game to thank him. It is incredible the amount of penalties he has saved.
“Every time someone steps up you have confidence in him to save it and it is pretty strange to have that.”
Permanent Celtic deal
Forster is on loan at Celtic at the moment, and perhaps the Hoops should look into the possibility of making it permanent.
It is hard to see Southampton draft the Englishman into their starting lineup next season, and given how well he is playing for the team at the moment, Celtic should try to sign up the veteran goalkeeper on a permanent contract.
