Chris Sutton hails Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster for stepping up in big moments

Chris Sutton believes that Celtic’s Fraser Forster is an incredible talent and he raved about him after his latest big moment for the Scottish giants.

The Bhoys earned a 1-1 away draw against Copenhagen on Thursday in the first leg of a Europa League Round of 32 tie.

Despite dominating in the first-half and scoring through Odsonne Edouard, Celtic were up against much tougher opposition in the second period and the found an equaliser.

Copenhagen looked primed to take an aggregate lead into the second leg when they were awarded a penalty, but goalkeeper Forster made an excellent low save to deny them.

 

The 31-year-old re-joined Celtic in the summer on loan from Southampton and he’s been a colossus in net this season for Neil Lennon’s team.

He’s kept 15 clean sheets in 34 games across all competitions and popped up with some brilliant individual saves.

“He’s an outstanding keeper and made another huge contribution in the Parken Stadium with his penalty save,” Sutton wrote in the Daily Record.

Forster knows how to come up with the big moments. Now that spot-kick stop in Copenhagen might just propel Celtic forward into the last 16 of the Europa League. Forster is sensational.”

TBR’s View:

Forster once again came to the rescue for Celtic when they needed him and his return to Parkhead has been an inspired one.

The six-time capped England international offers such a big presence in his own box and an assurance to the defence, plus he’s a great shot-stopper too.

The Scottish club will now be marginal favourites to eliminate Copenhagen when they face off in the second leg and home advantage could play a big role.
