Video: Watch Celtic Unveil Fraser Forster as Goalie Explains His ‘Delight’ at Parkhead Return

Celtic have paraded Fraser Forster as their latest signing this evening, with the goalkeeper speaking of his delight at returning to the Glasgow club.

Forster played a crucial part in Neil Lennon’s first spell in charge of the Hoops, and wrote himself into Celtic folklore when he put in an exceptional display in the club’s famous 2-1 win over Barcelona in 2012.

Now 31, Forster has returned to the eight-in-a-row Premiership champions on a season-long loan deal from Southampton, after falling out-of-favour with the Premier League side.

After travelling back to Scotland yesterday, Forster was paraded to in-front of the Parkhead crowd at half-time of tonight’s 2-0 Europa League victory over AIK Stockholm, where it was revealed he will now wear the No.67 jersey, and it seems the England international is pretty happy to be back at the club:

Obviously, Craig Gordon started between the sticks for the AIK match, but would you expect Forster to automatically become the new No.1 again?
