Fraser Forster: Celtic goalkeeper is not for sale

Forster joined Celtic on a permanent basis from Newcastle 12 months ago after enjoying two seasons on loan at Parkhead.

He still has three years left on his contract, but is a target for Benfica after impressing against the Portuguese club in the UEFA Champions League last season.

However, Celtic boss Neil Lennon has regularly stated his intention to keep hold of Forster and the Scottish champions have no wish to sell the 25-year-old.

The England hopeful will again be looking to catch the eye in the Champions League, with Celtic facing Kazakhstan side Shakhter Karagandy in the first leg of their play-off tie on Tuesday.

Earlier this summer, Forster was linked with a move to Sunderland to replace Simon Mignolet, who was sold to Liverpool.

m not sure about this distance covered malarky, plus that stat comes with *since February attached to it, that's just 1 month. I mean I have 27 open cases I'm 'working on' at the moment but believe me others with 10 cases work harder than I do. I just got back from a pub lunch, scampi and chips (+4 pints) in case you were wondering.
