FRASER FORSTER has admitted he would “never ever say no” to Celtic if the champions want to make him their permanent No.1.

The 31-year-old skyscraper keeper is on loan from Southampton until the end of the season.

However, the Englishman has made it clear he would not be against a return to the Hoops after a testing time at the Premier League outfit that saw him relegated to tird in the pecking order behind Angus Gunn and Alex McCarthy.

Forster, who joined the south coast club in a £10million switch in 2014, has swiftly recaptured the form that earned him six England caps and was immense in last week’s thrilling 2-1 Europa League Group E triumph over Lazio, particularly with two magnificent saves in the second-half.

At the end of this campaign, season, Forster will have two years of a big-money deal remaining at Saints.

Neil Lennon has admitted there are several factors which could come into play, but the towering shotstopper has opened the door for the move to happen.

Forster, speaking to the Daily Record, said: “I’d never ever say no to this club.

“It’s just the relationship I have with everyone here. The fans, people within the club and the coaching staff.

“That was the big thing for me in the summer when I had to get out and back playing.

“I just wanted to go somewhere I felt wanted. I’ve not had that for a long time. I’d some tough times down there.

“Training for the Under-23s and being away from the first-team. To come back is fantastic.

“A lot of it is out of my hands, we’ll just have to wait and see, but I’d never say no to this club.”
