Southampton's Fraser Forster: I’ll always be thankful for what Celtic did for me

The England goalkeeper is moving on with his career but will never forget the SPL side.

Southampton goalkeeper Fraster Forster says he will 'always be thankful' for what Celtic did for him during his career.

The 26-year-old spent several successful seasons with the SPL champions but is now enjoying a tremendous spell with the Saints after moving to St Mary's this summer.

But Forster, who played for England against Scotland earlier this week, says he will never forget the Bhoys.

“I’ll always be thankful for what Celtic did for me. I have absolutely tremendous memories from there. I just felt in the summer it was time for something new, a fresh start," the England goalkeeper is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“Southampton gave me that and we’ve had a great start. It’s been brilliant and I’ve loved every minute. It’s now important to work as hard as I can, play as well as I can and see where we go from there.

“Credit for our start goes to the manager, Ronald Koeman, and the coaches for the side they have put together.

“But it’s only a start. There’s still three-quarters of the season to go. It’s important we hit the ground running again after the international break.”
