The report has claimed that the Hoops are in the market for a new goalkeeper following the injury suffered by Scott Bain.

The 27-year-old Scotland international has reportedly picked up a hand injury and could be on the sidelines for two months.

Good signing for Celtic?

Forster is out of favour at Southampton, and the 31-year-old will be a good signing for Celtic in the summer transfer window.

The custodian was a success at Celtic during his time at the Hoops, having played for the Glasgow giants on loan from Newcastle United in 2010-11 and 2011-12 and then signed a permanent contract in 2012.

Forster, who played under Neil Lennon at Celtic, joined Southampton from the Hoops in 2014 for a transfer fee reported by The Scottish Sun to be worth £10 million.
