Celtic fans want Fraser Forster signed permanently after Betfred Cup final heroics

Celtic fans have taken to Twitter following the Betfred Cup final win over Rangers, and they have one quite understandable demand – sign Fraser Forster permanently.

The 6 foot 7 goalkeeper – who is currently on a season-long loan from Southampton – played a massive role in Celtic’s 1-0 win over arch-rivals Rangers, making a number of crucial saves to preserve his clean sheet.

Forster, 31, was a brick wall in between the sticks for the Bhoys, and also saved a penalty from the usually prolific Alfredo Morelos, who was denied by the Celtic glovesman on a number of occasions on Sunday afternoon.

The England international keeper’s loan is set to expire at the end of the current campaign, and Football Insider report that the Saints believe their out-on-loan man’s value could soar to over £20m by the time the season is over.

If Celtic did have to pay that much, one would assume that figure would be out of their reach, but nevertheless, a number of supporters have jumped onto Twitter to beg the newly-crowned Betfred Cup champions to sign the hero of the day.

One fan begged for the deal to happen and ordered the club to pay “any amount of money” whereas another supporter asked the club’s owners to throw as much money as they can to sign Forster.

The calls for the cup final hero’s permanent arrival continued, with these two fans demanding Celtic break the bank to sign the mountainous shot-stopper – one even asked for Southampton to be given a blank cheque so that they can write any number on it.

Lastly, another supporter said that signing Forster permanently would make up for “90 minutes of heart palpitations” while another simply demanded the signing in bold fashion, writing his message out entirely in capital letters.
