Fraser Forster has joined Celtic from Southampton.

Fraser Forster is heading back to Celtic after a deal was agreed with Southampton.

Forster has joined Celtic on loan, for the rest of the 2019/20 season, BBC Sport report.

Celtic sold him to Southampton for £10 million five years ago, so the deal is excellent value for the club.

The big issue is whether Forster is the same player, having lost his place at the Saints.

He is now 31-years-old, which is young for a goalkeeper, so he could still have five years or so left in him if he can rediscover his form.

Celtic needed extra cover in goal, with first choice stopper Scott Bain picking up an injury.

Veteran Craig Gordon is still at Celtic, but the club are not taking any risks.

Manager Neil Lennon worked with Forster previously and has been key in pushing to get the deal done.

Southampton fans retain a lot of respect for Forster, even if he is no longer in the club’s plans.

He leaves with good wishes, as shown by the messages below…
