Neil Lennon’s decision to bring Fraser Forster back to Celtic on loan from Southampton is starting to look better by the week. One man who sung his praises after yet another great display is Johan Mjallby, who lauded the goalkeeper whilst appearing on BT Sport.

Forster made his latest high profile save for the Hoops with a penalty stop in the 1-1 Europa League draw with Copenhagen.

The save follows in the footsteps of some excellent performances in the first-half of the season. He excelled against the likes of Rangers and Lazio.

Mjallby, who worked with Forster whilst he was Celtic assistant manager, paid a handsome compliment to Forster after the game.

“I was lucky to work with him”

“What a wonderful goalkeeper Fraser Forster is, saves the day again. I was lucky to work with him, he’s one of the best in the game” he said, whist appearing on BT Sport (BT Sport HD 3, 22:28).

Forster was a good goalkeeper in his first spell with Celtic. You only have to look at his incredible performance in the 2-1 win over Barcelona.

However, it is not too far-fetched to suggest that he is perhaps an even better goalkeeper now than he was in his first spell with the club.

Turned his career around

Forster deserves massive credit for that. He returned to Celtic on the back of little first-team football with Southampton.

However, he has more than proven his worth since then. Indeed, he just might be one of the best goalkeepers in the game, as Mjallby points out.
