Celtic: Fans laud Fraser Forster after last-gasp save against Lazio

It was Christopher Jullien’s 89th-minute header that proved the match-winning moment for Celtic in last night’s Europa League clash against Lazio at Parkhead, but the centre-back and his team-mates would soon owe a huge debt of gratitude to their last line of defence for ensuring that the score remained 2-1.

Will Celtic get to 10 in a row?

In the fourth minute of stoppage time, Celtic struggled to clear their lines as Lazio poured forward in search of an equaliser. The ball dropped to Danilo Cataldi, whose powerful first-time volley looked destined for the top corner of the net. [via UEFA.com]

However, as noted by @CelticFC on Twitter, Hoops goalkeeper Fraser Forster came up with a sublime save, showing incredibly quick reactions to get across and push the ball away to get Celtic over the line.

It was the last of four saves that the 31-year-old made on the night, with the Southampton loanee also doing excellently to thwart Ciro Immobile from close range with the score at 1-1 earlier in the game.

These Celtic fans on Twitter expressed their immense appreciation for Forster after his stoppage time heroics:
