Paul Robinson is convinced Fraser Forster is heading back to the Premier League after rebuilding his career at Celtic.

Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the ex-England goalkeeper is convinced the 31-year-old will be eager to “put a few things right” back in his homeland rather than settle permanently in Glasgow.

Forster made a shock return to Celtic in August after joining on a season-long loan from Southampton.

Neil Lennon moved to take the 6ft 7in giant to Parkhead for a second time after number one Scott Bain dislocated his figure.

Forster was immediately installed as the first choice ahead of veteran Craig Gordon and has made a big impression, culminating in an outstanding performance in Thursday’s memorable win over Lazio.

“Fraser Forster could still more than do a job in the Premier League because of the level of performance he got himself to when he got in the England squad,” Robinson told Football Insider.

“He’s still of an age where he can come back. I don’t know what is thoughts are. If I was him I’d be thinking, ‘I’ve got a couple of years up at Celtic, get in the team, play well and then I can come back finish my career in the Premier League’.

“I might be completely wrong and he has his sights set on finishing in Scotland and winning a title every year at Celtic but if it was me I’d think I still had a lot to prove south of the border.

“I think there is a great opportunity for him to rebuild his career, rebuild his confidence and to come back to a Premier League team and put a few wrongs right.”

Forster is Celtic’s best paid player, earning £70,000-a-week that his temporary employers are believed to pay a significant contribution towards during his loan.
