Paul Robinson has suggested Celtic could made another move for Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster in the summer.
Robinson discusses Forster
Forster spent last term on loan at Parkhead from the Saints, and has made 236 appearances for the Scottish side across a number of spells throughout his career (Transfermarkt).
“I worry because the pressure will be even greater next season when the fans are back in. As for Barkas, his future will be dependant on what manager comes in though.
“Celtic missed a trick by not re-signing Fraser Forster. He was amazing up there last season. I think he is a top goalkeeper.
“I am surprised as to why he stayed at Southampton. Maybe they will try again to sign him in the summer because it is a position they will need to strengthen in.
“If I was a new manager going in there I would be looking to sign a new number one.”
Role to play
Forster has had to spend much of the campaign at St. Mary’s Stadium as back-up to Alex McCarthy. However, in the 10 matches he has played in all competitions, he has kept six clean sheets. The Saints are through to the semi-finals of the F.A Cup without having conceded a goal in the competition, and Forster has played in all of those games so far.
Should Southampton keep Forster?
McCarthy has come under fire at times this term after a number of mistakes – perhaps Forster may have a chance to stake a claim as Ralph Hasenhuttl’s number one next season. As such, he may be better staying at Southampton than returning to Celtic once more.
