Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster has potentially saved his side’s blushes away at Copenhagen.
However, the turning point was perhaps Forster’s massive save to keep the score level.
His second half stop has sent the Hoops faithful crazy on Twitter with some fans wanting him signed permanently.
Fraser Forster on top for Celtic against Copenhagen
The big man was hardly tested during the ragged affair in the Danish capital.
He made a standard stop in the first half from Bryan Oviedo but had nothing more to do.
The Englishman was helpless for Dame N’Doye’s equaliser in the second 45.
Forster did prove his worth when he pulled off a fingertip stop against Jens Stage’s penalty.
Other than that there wasn’t any big chance for Forster to intervene on despite Copenhagen’s late dominance.
He perhaps kept The Bhoys in the tie though with the biggest save of the match despite his opposite number’s heroics.
This was another penalty stop for La Gran Muralla after a few in the league this season.
But, he will know himself that he will need to put in a stellar 90 minutes next week in the home leg.
Some Hoops fans react to goalkeeper’s performance
Some Celtic fans have taken to Twitter to react to Forster and his tie saving penalty save.
Get into the overdraft for Forster. Time and time again he steps up.

A draw is still a very good result. But with the amount of chances we had, can’t help but feel disappointed. Should do the job at home. But we should really have had the tie over with tonight. Big Fraser Forster saving our blushes yet again at the end with the penalty save.

When the other team gets a penalty, you always think there's a good chance Forster will save it

The Celtic fans seem wholly convinced of Forster’s qualities since he returned on loan last summer.
It will cost the Celts big money to take him permanently from Southampton in a few months.
However, with big saves like the penalty, Forster gets the all important results for his team.
