FRASER Forster has been tipped to play again in the Premier League by Paul Robinson.

Robinson made 375 top-flight appearances during his playing days, including 41 caps for England.

Forster is currently on a season-long loan at Celtic after falling down the pecking order at Saints.

Despite this, Robinson reckons the 31-year-old is more than capable of making a successful return to England.

“Fraser Forster could still more than do a job in the Premier League because of the level of performance he got himself to when he got in the England squad,” explained the ex-Tottenham shot-stopper.

“He’s still of an age where he can come back. I don’t know what his thoughts are. 

“If I was him I’d be thinking, ‘I’ve got a couple of years up at Celtic, get in the team, play well and then I can come back finish my career in the Premier League’.

“I might be completely wrong, and he has his sights set on finishing in Scotland and winning a title every year at Celtic but if it was me I’d think I still had a lot to prove south of the border.”

Forster, who initially joined Saints from Celtic back in 2014, returned to the Scottish giants in the summer.

He's already made 15 appearances, keeping seven clean sheets.

This came after losing his place in the Saints side following the club's Boxing Day defeat to Tottenham in 2017.

Alex McCarthy came in and replaced him, with the club then going out to land Angus Gunn from Man City in 2018.

Forster became accustomed to training during the week, only to be left at home at the weekend.

However, he was handed a chance to play against West Ham in May earlier this year.

Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl made a host of changes to his starting XI, which saw the St Mary's side lose 3-0.

It would be unfair to criticise Forster for any of the goals that went in due to his defence making a catalogue of errors.

The loan move to Scotland gave him the opportunity to start afresh, and when this season comes to a close, Robinson's confident he'll return to England.

He added: “I think there is a great opportunity for him to rebuild his career, rebuild his confidence and to come back to a Premier League team and put a few wrongs right.”
