DARRELL CURRIE has given Celtic supporters a hugely positive update in the club’s hunt for Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster. Speaking on Twitter, the popular BT Sport presenter gave a short update regarding Neil Lennon’s hunt for a first choice goalie.
Lots of angry people out there today. Blocked a fair few. Twitter at it’s best.
Forster to Celtic still on btw.

Neil Lennon gave an update yesterday to say that the ball was very much in the court of the 32-year-old goalkeeper but was coy on whether he was confident in securing the services of the Englishman.
Forster was unwilling to return should it be a temporary move and would rather remain at Southampton if this is the only alternative but appears to still be in favour of a Celtic permanent move.
The Englishman is on a reported £90k-per-week and Celtic would need to pay £5m on top of that as well as making him one of the club’s top earners. A deal could yet be done but Celtic if Fraser Forster is to return to the club, it will be on a permanent basis and the club need to pay up for his services.
Meanwhile, Newcastle United goalkeeper Freddie Woodman has been linked as a possible replacement for Forster should a deal fail to transpire. The 23-year-old is perhaps seen as a project with just one full season playing regular football to his name.
Accuses the SPFL of fixing the fixture list to suit Celtic then complains about people being angry. https://t.co/rVCmMkv7EY
