Celtic have moved 13 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Kristoffer Ajer fired Celtic into a slender lead on 81 minutes after Callum McGregor's first-half opener was cancelled out by Ashton Taylor shortly before the half-hour mark.

It was a good win by the Hoops and in difficult conditions, as goalkeeper Fraser Forster found out.

 

With Storm Dennis raging up North, the Celtic stopper's long balls were rarely reaching its target, with his all-round distribution somewhat questionable throughout the game.

In addition to that, the Southampton-owned star's decision making didn't go down that well with some fans of the Parkhead club.

Quite a few supporters found certain things wrong with Forster's performance and here's their reaction on Twitter:

Forster, a £10 million signing by the Saints from Celtic in 2014 [The Scottish Sun], has been a revelation since returning to Parkhead on loan.

As far as stopping shots go - and penalties - he is probably the best in Scotland and distribution issues or not, the supporters would love to see him stay in the long term.
