FORSTER REVEALS WHY HE SNUBBED CELTIC

Southampton shot stopper Fraser Forster has revealed why he snubbed Scottish champions Celtic last summer after his impressive loan spell at the club. England goalkeeper Fraser Forster told the Daily Echo that the only intention he had last summer was to return to parent club Southampton to fight for a spot in the first team. According to him, he didn’t want to stay on at Celtic despite helping the club to get their impressive quadruple treble over the line upon signing for them on loan from Southampton for the 2019/20 season.


Ex-Three Lions of England shot stopper Fraser Forster has now played for Celtic in four different spells after his loan move to the club in the last campaign. Three of those four spells have been loans. He was sent to Celtic on loan for the 2010/11 season and for the 2011/12 season while he was at Newcastle United. England shot stopper Forster made his move to Celtic permanent in 2012 after two successful loan years at the club. He was at Celtic as a permanent player for two seasons between 2012 and 2014 before Southampton secured his return to England. He has been with the Saints since then.

Fraser Forster has played second fiddle to first choice goalkeeper Alex McCarthy for the majority of this season and he finally got his chance when McCarthy tested positive for Covid-19 some days ago. Fraser Forster replaced Alex McCarthy in goal for the Saints last week and he took the chance well. He kept a clean sheet as the Saints recorded a big win over the Premier League champions. Danny Ings was responsible for the only goal in a 1-0 win over the Reds. Fraser Forster was set to continue in the Southampton goal for the FA Cup third round home clash with Shrewsbury Town but the game has been postponed due to the Covid-19 cases in the Shrewsbury Town team.
