The sponsors didn’t have to bother asking for a Man of the Match.

It was no contest as Southampton’s third choice keeper turned in an outstanding performance that only stopped short of scoring the winning goal as Celtic lifted the League Cup for the fourth year running.

Time and time again Fraser Foster defied the Ibrox men with Alfredo Morelos the biggest victim as the hoops keeper completed his domestic medal collection.

Forster used his hands and legs to ensure a clean sheet and even managed a goal-line slide tackle on Joe Aribo to keep the Ibrox men at bay.

Back in 2012 the keeper was described as The Great Wall for putting the shutters up on Barcelona with today’s performance probably surpassing that incredible evening.

Pride of place went to a 63rd minute penalty save from Morelos but there was still half an hour to hold out with ten men, when the final whistle blew the Celtic players, fans and management saluted the quietly spoken Geordie that keeps them on course for the Quadreble.
