Pundit Exclusive: Celtic tipped to re-sign player in Jan after 'Amazing' Athletic reveal

Fraser Forster would be interested in re-signing for Celtic in January having struggled for game time at Southampton this season.

That is according to former Spurs and Leeds United goalkeeper Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs about the possibility of the 32-year-old returning to Parkhead next month.

The Athletic report that the Scottish Premiership champions may ‘go back in’ for Forster in January having failed in their efforts to sign him in the summer.

The 6-times England international is yet to make an appearance for the Saints this season with Alex McCarthy the undisputed number one at St. Mary’s.

The Hoops instead signed Vasilis Barkas in July but the Greece international goalkeeper has failed to impress since his £4.5million move and was dropped for Scott Bain last month.

When asked by Football Insider if the arrival of Forster could save Celtic’s season, Robinson said:

“I do not know if Forster could save their season but his arrival would go a long way. It would be a big boost.

“Celtic were massively disappointed that he did not stay.

“He went back to Southampton but he has not got a game so I think it would be in everyone’s interests that he moved back to Scotland.

“If it was me, I would want to go. He did amazing things there last season and I think he will want to play.”
