Fraser Forster was given the full Disco Lights treatment as he returned to Celtic last night.

Five years ago at Murrayfield the keeper waved his farewells to the Celtic support as he headed for a £10m transfer to Southampton.

Craig Gordon came back from injury to take over a Celtic’s first choice keeper, a position he retained until the turn of the year apart from a brief spell when Brendan Rodgers preferred Dorus de Vries.

As a Celtic player Forster was in England’s 2014 World Cup squad but after injury cost him his place at Southampton his international days ended.

With just one first team appearance last season match sharpness is the big issue as Celtic attempt to get the giant keeper into a position to push for a first team place.

There are just three top team matches until the next international break, on Tuesday Celtic have a Reserve Cup match away to Dundee as Forster attempts to pick up on a career that has stalled over the last two years.
