'Turned his career around' - Exclusive: Robinson dazzled by Celtic ace who had 'Lost his way'
Paul Robinson has been left raving over Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster after seeing him turn his career around at Parkhead this season.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider assistant editor Russell Edge, the former Leeds United and England stopper says the colossal Southampton loanee has thrived since returning to Glasgow.
The ex-Newcastle keeper has played 35 times for the Hoops since moving back north of the border, his latest outing coming against Kilmarnock on Sunday afternoon.
Having seen Forster take Craig Gordon’s place in the starting XI and play on a regular basis, Robinson says it looks like the shot-stopper has rediscovered his love for the game this season.
Robinson told Football Insider: “He’s turned his career around, he went to Celtic with the idea of finding a little bit more of that if you like.
“He was completely frozen out at Southampton, nowhere near the squad, nowhere near the team, didn’t play after signing a new five-year deal and has been out the picture for the last two years.

“He’s completely fallen out of love with it and had lost his way, going back to Celtic seems to be a spiritual home for him, he’s refound his form, he’s replaced Craig Gordon which is no mean feat because he was going well.”
Forster now has 232 appearances under his belt since first arriving in Glasgow from Newcastle United, while he played 125 times for Southampton after returning to England.
His last Saints outing came in May 2018, playing against West Ham on the penultimate game of last season.
