believes Celtic must return to Southampton to sign - whatever it takes.

The BBC  pundit was speaking after another underwhelming performance from Vasilis Barkas as Celtic crashed to a 4-2 defeat away to AC Milan as the depressing stats piled up.

Last week it was Scott Bain in goals as they lost 4-1 away to with the two keepers shipping 17 goals in five ties.

A year ago Forster was a hero of the wins over Lazio before going on to dominate the Final as Celtic claimed the only trophy played to a conclusion last season.

On the surface it would seem an easy fix to bring Forster back from Southampton but if all the transfer hurdles were overcome to secure a deal they would be faced with a very uncomfortable home truth- every new signing at Celtic this season has bombed.

Shane Duffy was the Great Defensive Hope but the Iron Man wilted as everything around him collapsed. Albian Ajeti started with a flurry of goals but has drifted out quickly with Patryk Klimala sent on ahead of him last night in the San Siro.

has played 131 minutes across six appearances since his £3m move from Motherwell.

Even from the bench at Southampton it is debatable whether Forster would risk his reputation to return to a sinking ship as the problems pile up on on a daily basis.
