FRASER Forster admitted he couldn't be happier for his Celtic teammate Moi Elyounoussi.

The duo are both on a season-long loan with the Scottish giants and have been making the most of playing regularly.

Elyounoussi was on target again at the weekend for Celtic, with his two goals taking his tally to seven in just 10 matches.

Forster said: “I’m delighted for Moi. He had a tough year last year as well, it is amazing what a bit of love and confidence can do for you.

“Ever since he scored that first goal he has not looked back. He keeps chipping in and contributing and that’s just fantastic for us.

“It is a positive, multiplying effect.”

Having cost Saints £16m in 2018, Elyounoussi failed to create any kind of impact at St Mary's.

This led to long periods out of the first team, making just eight appearances for Ralph Hasenhuttl when he took charge of the team in December.

Like Elyounoussi, Forster had become accustomed to not playing for Saints which is why he piled the praise on the winger.

He added: “Last year, Moi did not really play much football at all. He has come here and you need that run of games in the team, it’s hard to come in and be expected to do it from day one.

“But he has come in, had a few 90 minutes under his belt and scored and had assists. His confidence can only grow.

“I know more than anyone how hard it was for him and he just looks like a completely different player.”
