Mark Wilson has told the Ladbrokes Social Club that he believes Celtic will be able to keep goalkeeper Fraser Forster beyond the end of the season, and sign him on a permanent basis from English Premier League side Southampton.
Forster, 31, has starred for Celtic since rejoining the Scottish champions on a season-long loan. The England international has conceded just 13 goals in 20 matches for Celtic, keeping a very impressive nine clean sheets for Neil Lennon’s men.
His best moment for Celtic during his second spell came on Sunday, as the Hoops earned a narrow 1-0 win to beat Rangers in the Betfred Cup final. Christopher Jullien scored the only goal, but Forster made a string of stunning saves.
Forster also saved a penalty from Alfredo Morelos, winning the man-of-the-match award as Celtic won their tenth consecutive trophy. Former Celtic defender Wilson was asked if his old side would keep Forster, and he reckons they can.
“I think they will find a way, I think he has made such a difference,” Wilson said. “He’s done it on the big stage, in European football as well. He’s got such a good relationship with Neil Lennon.
