Celtic won’t be looking to sign a goalkeeper in the January transfer window.

During the Europa League group three goalkeepers were used with the hoops losing 19 goal as they finished bottom of the group.

Conor Hazard has gone from third choice to the man in possession prompting speculation that another keeper would be a priority when the transfer window opens.

Fraser Forster joined Celtic for pre-season training in June but the expected transfer from Southampton fell through without any obvious explanation.

Celtic switched their attention to Vasilis Barkas but despite paying AEK Athens a fee of £4m the Greek internationalist hasn’t looked convincing in his Celtic appearances.

Forster hasn’t played a minute of football at Southampton but hasn’t said a word about the failure of his expected transfer to Celtic.

Hazard has made five top team appearances for Celtic and is expected to be in goals for Saturday’s Glasgow derby.
