FORMER Celtic goalkeeper Pat Bonner ‘is certain’ Fraser Forster wants to stay at the Scottish side beyond the end of the season.

Forster, who joined Saints from Celtic in 2014, was sent out on loan last summer by Ralph Hasenhuttl.

The 32-year-old was in the midst of an excellent campaign before Covid-19 led to football being suspended indefinitely, keeping 17 clean sheets in 39 appearances.

Speaking to the Scottish Sun, former Celtic great Bonner said: "You have to think keeping Fraser Forster at the club would be Neil’s priority.

"I’m certain Fraser would want to stay with Celtic. Why wouldn’t he? Coming back has been a big success for him.

“He’s revived his career by playing every week and he’s produced for the team domestically and in Europe.

"Fraser is definitely the man for top saves at big moments in games. Neil likes a goalkeeper to have a major presence and Fraser definitely fits that bill."
